Re: Tools: Building a strip thickness sander

The roller on the sander pushes the wood against the fence. For the most part you just get the wood through the gap and it's going to be fine. If you want you can run the same piece through several times without changing the settings. Not really necessary, but it does open pores on both sides of the wood which helps equalize the moisture content.
