Sanding box construction article?
Sometime in the last few months, I saw an article in one of the model mags about building a sanding table (box attached to vacuum that sucks up dust as you sand). A friend mentioned an interest in building one and now I can't find the article. I have looked through most of the last year's "Model Airplane News" and "Model Aviation" and if it was there I missed it. Might have been in EFI, but doesn't seem their style. Anyone see the article and remember what mag it was in? Thanks a bunch,

You prompted me into action!
Last night I retrieved an old plastic storage container from my cupboard, about 12"x10"x2" in size.
I stick the lid on with duct tape and drilled 1/4" holes at 1" intervals in the top. Then I cut a hole in the side, just big enough to be a tight fit around the hose of my vacuum cleaner.
It seemed to work ok when I tested it by sanding a chunk of balsa over it. Time will tell if it works well enough.
It took 1 episode of Third Rock from the Sun to complete.
