Ambraske,

Nice work, I meant to add for additional protection of the ribs a strip of masking tape across the ribs at the trailing edge's leading edges keeps the sanding block from nicking the ribs also.  Works pretty good!

Trailing edge sanding tool

Here's a prototype of my trailing edge sanding tool. The magnets allow me to make sure everything is square. With the magnetic fixtures and the aluminium profile I can change the angle of the sanding block (so I don't touch the ribs but only the LE). I just need to fix a galvanized steel plate to the smaller board so I can better secure the object that needs to be sanded.
It won't win any style or design contests but it works! It's also yet another example of how versatile a magnetic work board can be!
