Mini Thickness Sander

Our first builders’ workshop on Saturday was a success as seven members enjoyed a convivial atmosphere in Tom Russell’s Kona side shop while building mini-thickness sanders. An afternoon of cutting plywood, some machine work and final assembly produced a very useful attachment to our bench sanders - perfect for thinning smaller work pieces. 

Click for a very simplified parts list, and plan drawing.  The plans are for a Porter-Cable benchtop sander available at Lowe’s.  You will have to adapt these plans to the size (height) of your benchtop sander.  The tiltable platform to be a couple of inches below the height of sanding roller (see pic).  Ask for assistance!
