Now, is that neat; or is that neat? Even has a clamp for safety. Nice.

No prob, just point it toward your neighbor's yard.

Now that I think on it a bit more, I don't know as I'd have much call for a belt sander in a jig like that, not on it's back; but standing on end, could definitely get some use out of something like that.

My first requirement when purchasing a belt sander is that the top is flat so it will lie upsidedown by itself. The second requirement is that it have a trigger lock so it stays on by itself. The rest of the functions I don't require that it do by itself.

Putting a sander upside down on a bench, then turning it on, would be way too scarey for me - you didn't mention fixing it in place. It would have to be in a jig, then the jig fastened firmly down, before I would want one upside down running near me - which renders the flatness of the top meaningless. And, if it didn't have a lock so it stays on my itself, no prob, I'd use a zip tie to hold the trigger down. Then have a switch on the socket to turn it on and off - same as my router table.
