Sanded ends show that table is square

When I adjust my disc-sander table at a right angle to the disc, I verify the setting quickly-and precisely-with a couple of 1x2 scrap pieces. I just place the two pieces side-by-side on the table and sand the ends square, as shown right. Keeping the same edges on the table, I then bring the sanded ends together. If they mate perfectly, I know that the table is square to the disk. Otherwise, I readjust the table and try again. You also can use the same process to ensure your bandsaw table is square to the blade, by cutting two pieces on the same side of the blade.
