    Bet your gonna laugh...

    I was sanding a piece of MDF for a project I'm working on and I wanted to use the bigger drums on my oscillating sander to get more material off quicker. As I started sanding I noticed that the sanding pads moved up the drum and wouldn't stay on and I didn't have any washer big enough so I had to improvise...

    So here it is; my biscuit washer!!

    While drilling through the biscuit it broke in half, the original washer held the two pieces on the drum.

    I'll laugh, not at you, but in enjoying your ability to overcome a problem, well done!

    Hey, it worked. It's a very workable idea, even using small pieces of wood other than biscuits.

    No laughing here. That looks like a perfectly legitimate solution.

    Very well done... when I was in the military we called that a "field expedient". In other words, do whatever you gotta do to get the job done or to get out of the danger .
