Edge Sanding Guide Hack
« on: June 12, 2021, 09:50 PM »
It drives me crazy that every time I remove it from my sander I misplace my bolts. 

So quick fix is to add a couple of o rings on the bolts. Solved my problem and thought I would share.

Don't you have to remove the o-rings before mounting the edge guide? If so, how you keep track of the o-rings?

I keep the bolts and allan wrench together with a magnet.

Nope, just leave o rings on bolts and tighten up (they squeeze down) then bolts stay in one side of edge guide when I disassemble
