    portable belt sander in bench vice

    I finally got around to doing what I've been thinking about for
    a long time as I dont have a spindle or benchtop sander.
    I clamped on the handle with it upside down and it
    works terrific. Dont know why I waited so long.

    and i thought I was original in that thinking

    Save up your pennies and get one of the Ridgid combo spindle/edge sanders when you can... very inexpensive considering what you get, and worth every bit.

    I did your trick for a while and it does work, but it is great having the real deal.

    The only belt sanders I have had are the flat-top ones that can be flipped and used upside down (Ryobi and now Bosch). I use a scrap of 3/4" plywood and tack a couple runners to slip it in to make it more stable. Even with a spindle sander available, to do a small job it's easier to flip the belt sander than to go to the other sander.
    And now for something completely different....

    I've used that technique too!

    Sometimes you gotta make do with what you have

    74 it also. Is a good way to make do for the time being. I guess making "do" is better than "doing" without
