when half full.
,_WARNING:
To prevent the possibility of sawdust
or foreign objects being thrown into your face and
eyes, never attempt to use your sander without
dust bag properly installed. Sawdust or foreign
objects being thrown into your face and eyes
could result in possible serious injury.
Do not connect sander to power supply before
installing dust bag.
SANDING
TO INSTALL DUST BAG
•
,_,
Selecting the correct size and type of sanding belt is
an important step in achieving a high quality sanded
finish. Standard 4 in. x 21 in. sanding belts made of
aluminum oxide, silicone carbide, and other synthetic
abrasives are best for power sanding. In general,
coarse grit will remove the most material and fine grit
will produce the smoothest finish in all sanding
operations. The condition of the surface to be sanded
will determine which grit belt will do the job. If the
surface is rough, start with a coarse grit belt sanding
until surface is uniform. Medium grit belt may then be
used to remove scratches left by the coarser belt and
fine grit belt used for finishing of the surface. Always
continue sanding with each grit belt until the surface is
uniform.
Unplug your sander.
WARNING:
Failure to unplug your sander could
result in accidental starting causing possible
serious personal injury.

Uneven work.
•
Clogged sanding belts.
•
Premature sanding belt wear. Removal rate will

•
Possible motor burnout.
•
Irregular sanding belt tracking.
Note: If the sanding belt moves while sanding, you
may be applying too much pressure. When this
occurs remove sander from workpiece. If belt tracking
is properly adjusted, sanding belt will return to its
normal and correct position on the drive roller and
front roller.
10
Clamp or otherwise secure the work to prevent it from
moving under your sander.
,_
•
Use a coarser belt when heavy sanding is desired, not
heavy pressure. The importance of this cannot be
overemphasized. Weight has been built into the tool
to give the most efficient pressure at the proper
location.
WARNING:
Unsecured work could be thrown
back toward operator causing injury.
Before placing sander on work surface, squeeze the
switch trigger and let the motor reach its maximum
speed, then lower your sander to the work surface
with a slight forward motion. Using the rear handle to
control your sander and the front handle only to guide
it, move it slowly over the work. Allowing your sander
to remain in one place will result in an uneven surface.
Note: The front roller of your sander was not designed for contour sanding. Sanding on the front roller
could cause irregularity in sanding belt tracking.

GENERAL
_i,
Only the parts shown on parts list, page 17, are
intended to be repaired or replaced by the customer.
All other parts represent an important part of the
double insulation system and should be serviced only
by a qualified Sears service technician.
LUBRICATION
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic pads.
Most plastics are susceptible to damage from various
types of commemial solvents and may be damaged
by their use. Use clean cloths to remove dirt, carbon
dust, etc.
,_
WARNING:
Always wear safety goggles or
safety glasses with side shields during power tool
operation or when blowing dust. If operation is
dusty, also wear a dust mask.
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a
sufficient amount of high grade lubricant for the life of
the unit under normal operating conditions. Therefore,
no further lubrication is required.
EXTENSION
CORDS
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power. To keep the loss to a minimum and to prevent
tool overheating, use an extension cord that is heavy
enough to carry the current the tool will draw.
WARNING:
Do not at any time let brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating
oils, etc. come in contact with plastic pads. They
contain chemicals that can damage, weaken or
destroy plastic.
A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 14 is
recommended for an extension cord 100 feet or less
in length. When working outdoors, use an extension
cord that is suitable for outdoor use. The cord's jacket
will be marked WA,
It has been found that electric tools are subject to
accelerated wear and possible premature failure when
they are used on fiberglass boats, sports cars,
wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster. The
chips and gdndings from these materials are highly
abrasive to electric tool parts such as bearings,
