Edge sander jig for my old Makita belt sander. It’s basically just slapped together from scraps. I did shellac the tabletop, though, for smoothness. My shopvac plugs into the side, with a hole directly underneath the rear wheel, drawing in all dust. It also functions as a spindle sander, to a certain degree. The sander is mounted to a board which is mounted to a hinge, so it can flip back and sit flat.

I got the idea from Good site. Check it out.

I was thinking about making an edge sander but I have an old belt sander like this and may have to give it a try. Thanks for the idea.
