Seeking ideas for DIY tables for belt sanders

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

I recently acquired two 1” x 42” belt plus disc sanders, a Delta and a Jet, both in great shape, for v short $. 

Neither one has either of the adjustable material rest tables, and a review of the appropriate parts diagrams shows many of the key components are NLA. 


The only plans/ideas I’ve found online are for large, welded tables which is NG for my needs. 

The tables need not be attached directly to the tools’ chassis. They could rest on/be attached to the 3/4” plywood bases. 

Although I’ll not be doing anything that requires a super-accurate table, I’ll require at least a right angle and a 45* table for the belt and the disc. An adjustable, pivoting, flat table/rest would be ideal, but I’d be happy with just the basics for right now—something that can be fabbed in my wood shop. 

TIA, as always, for your help.
