Lee - they are great for sanding curved edges that you cut with a jig, 
band, or scroll saw.  Take a piece of thick plywood or a 1x and cut a 
hole about 1/2" bigger than the sanding bit you are using and clamp it 
to the drill press table.  Raise the table so the edge of the bit is 
below the board with the hole and sand away.  Start at low speed, 
especially with the larger sanding bits.  Use the biggest bit that fits 
the curve for the smoothest results.
