If you've ever seen an edge
sander shake like an old washing machine...you'll
understand why we wanted to design our own.
It seemed a little crazy at first, but after
we finished the project and flipped the switch,
we realized that this big, green machine was
an impressive tool.
It runs smooth and strong — just like
you’d expect from an industrial quality
tool. And when you adjust the tracking, the
belt not only shifts up or down on the rollers
instantly — it stays put. Plus, we included
a host of other features that make this shop-built
edge sander outperform just about any sander
on the market. This woodworking plan appeared
in Shopnotes magazine No. 37.
