Tips & Tricks: Sander extension table

Comments (0)

This article is from Issue 108 of Woodcraft Magazine

I frequently use my stationary belt/disc sander for truing curves and other shaping operations. When used with a light touch, it can produce excellent results. Supporting larger workpieces, however, can be a challenge. To help with this, I made a plywood extension that I can fasten to the machine’s existing tables. Adjustable legs attached with hinges keep the larger table from tilting away from the desired angle under load while flathead machine screws thread into holes drilled and tapped in the cast iron to hold the table in place.
