    I urge caution around the idea of using a ROS for fine sanding of a finish because it's difficult to avoid uneven results. Flat finished surfaces are best "fine finish sanded" with a block manually...

    The fence to blade alignment is probably way out...and getting it true on a job-site type saw can be a challenge, unfortunately. This can also setup a dangerous kickback situation.
