I was just wondering what most guys are using for profiling sanders and if anyone has made their own?
Would love to see pics...

I would as well. Hopefully someone will have something on here soon.

Sometimes I porpoise, sometimes I fishtail. Maybe I should get back in the boat.

Mike that's great. Did you build the guide?
I think I'll try to make some sort of guide for my sander.
It looks like dust collection is nonexistent. Have to just live with that.

yup--its a 1/4" plate of hot roll-with the rub collar welded from the bottom and ground flush-it sits on the existing end table-with two machine screws keeping it in place-the dust collection is removed for clarity--its a chute that bolts on with those two bolts behind the wheel and gets piped over head to the other side of the room---if you build more than a few bows its the only way to go

Did anyone built a profiling sander out of a oscillating spindle sander?

YEP

A simple rub collar and 3/4" x 6" base (cold roll).

 -
1/2" CR rod with a hex end so it doesn't slip in the chuck and two roll pins to keep it in the unit

Mike, you appear to be speechless. 😶

I will not be able to build anything new until after Christmas. But your guide idea will benefit more then a few guys in our woodworking club. I'm looking forward to building something similar.
I have no idea how many of any one bow design I will build, at this point everything is a one off. I'm trying to build the bow that is both gorgeous and shoots like a dream.
Thanks
-Tim

Really interesting and well thought out profiling sanders for any DIYer. Thumbs up to that. [Smile]

I also found these profiling sanders on another site.Though they might be a bit more expensive to build.
