These are some of the things I found by doing a search for "table saw sanding
The shopsmith & Smithy come equipped with a sanding disc, although I am not sure
if they would fit a normal table saw.

                  The teeth on a saw blade sure can be a nuisance sometimes 
                  when you are trying to set the blade angle for a bevel cut. 
                  and a bit of pitch buildup can make set-up a real guessing

Calibration /
                  Sanding disk. Its precision ground plate is an extra stiff 
                  thick (thats 50% thicker than most saw blades!), and the 
                  have any teeth or gullets to get in the way of a machinists
square, so
                  the full diameter is available for reference. Once the saw is
                  aligned, apply a pressure sensitive adhesive backed sanding
disk and
                  turn your saw into a precision disk sander. See our abrasives
                  for both 8" and 10" disks to fit. 5/8" arbor hole.

Freud's calibration and sanding disc is designed to
   improve the accuracy of your table saw while making it
   more versatile. The disc is a 5/32"-thick steel plate that
   is precisely ground out of high-strength steel. Its surface
   is said to be flat to within .001". Install it in place of
   your table saw blade and use it to gauge the distance to
   the fence or miter gauge. This allows for extremely
   accurate setup. You can augment its versatility by
   attaching the company's peel-and-stick abrasive discs
   to it, allowing you to use your table saw as a sander. It
   comes in diameters of 8" and 10" ($35 and $38), and a
   5-disc sanding pack costs from $14 to $24 at Freud
   tool dealers and through tool catalogs. Write Freud,
   P.O. Box 7187, 218 Feld Avenue, High Point, NC
