    That's a nice big one indeed! And you're right, a large disc does give latitude in how you use your sander.

    A "tip of the hat".

    Your build looks and probably works better than many machines that are sold.

    My next sander, I have a 9" Chinese toy, will be a home built. Thanks for the lesson.
