I make a lot of band saw boxes, but the 4-1⁄2″ height of my spindle sander drums wasn’t tall enough to sand the entire surface of my projects. Then I discovered that I can install 6″- long sanding sleeves on the same short rubber drums. The longer sleeves are still stiff enough to do the job, even when unsupported near the top. No need to buy a bigger sander.
