I recently used my belt sander to sand the edge of a 1-inch thick table top. But, try as I may, I couldn’t avoid rocking the belt sander, resulting in an edge that was rounded and uneven. I found that I could avoid the problem by clamping a straight length of wood to the table top, flush with the edge. This added surface provided more area for the sander to ride on, so I ended up with a perfect edge.
