Rockler Disc Sander Angle Jig and Circle Sanding Points
Sand precise miters, square the ends of pen blanks, fine-tune the length of boards, and sand circles all with just this jig and an ordinary disc sander. Thanks to its pivoting fence and large, easy-to-read protractor scale, you can hold your workpiece at the precise angle required, every time. And straight edges aren't the only thing it can do. The jig includes a miter slot that holds a steel pivoting point and stop for sanding circles and outside radiuses. The jig is built on a 12'' x 15'' x 3/4'' MDF base and can be attached to any disc sander with a standard 3/8'' x 3/4'' miter slot and at least 3'' of distance between the front edge of the miter slot and the disc.
In the event that you lose or misplace the steel pivoting point that came with your Rockler Disc Sander Angle Jig, it's nice to have a couple spares on hand. The points slide into the miter slot and rest against the stop, allowing you to easily edge sand circles and semi-circles.

The stop / pin point works well! You can sneak up on a perfect circle, and the method accommodates stock that isn't even close to being round, which is nice.
It wouldn't be that hard to make one of these, but getting the details as right as this would be hard.
If you mostly use your disk sander for flat sanding, or rounding over bigger work, the fence will get in your way. But, if you need a bit more precision than a piece of painter's tape on your table to establish an angle, this system is pretty cool.
