This drawing shows
you how the sander is put together.
It starts with the base that provides
a large platform for steadying the
sander when smoothing an edge.
After adding a dowel to act as a
handle, you can work on the cradle
that holds the drill. Two shallow
bevels form a “V” to hold the
drill. A third piece acts as a support
and forms another handle for
Finally, two large hose clamps
securely lock the drill into position.
Just make sure the sanding drum is
square to the base (use shims if necessary
to adjust the drill’s position).
This edge sander will become
one of your go-to tools in the shop
for getting smooth edges.
