Simple solution for saving spindle-sander sleeves
While using my oscillating spindle sander, I realized that the bottom portion of the sanding drum does most of the work, while the top portion remains unused. I solved this problem by making an auxiliary table that elevates the workpiece to get more mileage out of the drums. I made custom inserts with holes sized to accommodate the various drum diameters.
