Belt Sander Jig
Converts your belt sander into a multifunctional stationary
- Different Platform arrangements allow you to do
different sanding functions
- Spindle sanding
- Plugs into power strip to control ON/OFF [not shown].
- Belt sander is easily removable.
- Miter gauge for precision work
- Removable Platforms for greater capacity
- I used 1-1/2" solid core door stock. You can use ¾"
plywood which will need to be reinforced.
- Assorted hinges
How to Make:
- The key to building this jig is patience.
- Build the Sub Stand. The Sub Stand will
eventually be attached to the Base. All front and back movement and
sideways movement of the sander should be eliminated and the sander should be
level while mounted on the Sub Stand. The sander is held in by gravity.
- Figure out your custom measurements and build the
Base, Back, and Platforms A & B. The height for
Platforms A & B should be about 6".
- Locate the Stop Block [1-1/2" x 6"] where the
sander is flat.
How to Use:
- Figure 1: Use this position for sanding with the
- Figure 2: Use this position for sanding without
the Stop Block plus use this position for Spindle Sanding. [notice how
Platform A is contoured around the belt sander in order to Spindle Sand].
- Figure 3: Use this position for sanding without
any Platform [Optional Feature] In order to make this feature use elbow
catches as shown and hinges [not shown].
