How to Operate the Machine
DANGER:
Sanding/finishing wood floors
can create an environment
that can be explosive. Cigarette lighters, pilot lights and
any other source of ignition
can create an explosion when
active during a sanding session. All sources of ignition
should be extinguished or
removed entirely if possible
from the work area.
DANGER:
Work areas that are poorly
ventilated can create an
explosive environment when
certain combustible materials
are in the atmosphere, i.e.,
solvents, thinners, alcohol,
fuels, certain finishes, wood
dust and other combustible
materials. Floor sanding
machines can cause flammable material and vapors to
ignite. Read the manufacturer's label on all chemicals
used to determine combustibility. Keep the work area well
ventilated.
DANGER:
Sanding dust can spontaneously ignite and cause an
injury or damage. Sanding
dust should be disposed of
properly. Always empty the
sanding dust into a metal
container. Remove the contents of the dust bag when the
bag is 1/3 full.
DANGER:
Sanding dust can spontaneously ignite and cause an
injury or damage. Remove the
contents of the dust bag each
time you finish using the
machine. Always dispose of
the dust in a metal container
located outside of the building.
Never leave a dust bag unattended with sanding dust in it.
Do not empty the contents of
the dust bag into a fire.
DANGER:
Hitting a nail while sanding
can cause sparks and create
an explosion or fire. Always
use a hammer and punch to
countersink all nails before
sanding floors.
Clarke® American Sanders FloorCrafter Operator's Manual
To operate the machine follow this procedure:
1. Before sanding, decide on best approach for
sanding desired area. If the floor is uneven, it
may be necessary to sand diagonally to the
direction that the floor is laid. This will help
"pull" or stretch low and high spots in the floor
over a greater area, producing a flatter surface.
Premiminary cuts should be performed at angles
approximately 15° to the direction of the wood
grain. Cut direction should change on succesive
cuts with the final cut performed in the direction
of the wood grain. This will minimize the tendency of waves to form and provide the most
even floor surface.
When sanding the area, work in a way so that
you are moving away from where the cord set
enters the room. This will help to avoid entanglement with the cord set and eliminate the need to
move the cord set out of the way so frequently.
Work the area in a way that avoids interruption or
termination points ( an end of pass.) Make long
continuous passes.
2. Swing cable arm to side of machine opposite the
direction you intend to work. Rotate elbow on
dust pipe until dust bag rest on motor. This will
maintain balance and sanding pressure as the
dust bag fills. The machine should be operated
with the dust bag in this position whenever
possible.
3. If the operating belt (Clarke American Sanders
PN 60724A) is used proceed as follows:
a. Position the operating belt around waist.
b. Cross the straps at the waist. See figure
#13.
c. Slide the belt loop end over the handle on
the control lever side. Adjust the length as
needed.
d. Wrap the remaining strap around the opposite side of the handle, and hold it in place
with your hand.
WARNING:
Serious operator injury could
occur if the operator has tied or
strapped the loose end of the
operator's belt strap to the machine. Always wrap the strap so
that you can let go and get away
quickly in case of bag fire or
explosion.
4. Turn the control switch to the "On" position.
CAUTION:
To prevent damage to the floor,
make sure the machine is in
motion when the contact wheel
is engaged with the floor.
5. Feather-cut in by easing the contact wheel down
onto the surface with the control lever while the
sander is in motion.
Page
11
6. When contact wheel is fully engaged with the
surface, gradually adjust your pace for adequate
finish removal. Keep sander in motion while the
contact wheel is engaged with the surface or
dwell marks will occur.
7. Move the machine in the direction of the grain in
the wood whenever it is possible. Sand the
surface at a constant pace.
8. Gradually feather-cut out at the termination point
by easing the contact wheel up with the control
lever. (See Figure 13)
9. Repeat technique described in steps 5, 6, 7, and
8 and sand back down pass just made. When
completed, begin a new pass by overlapping
previous pass half the width of the abrasive.
Stagger termination points to prevent a distinct
ridge and a better blend when edging.
Figure 13
10.Empty contents of the dust bag into a metal
container located outside the building. Dust bag
should be emptied whenever full, as indicated on
bag.
WARNING:
Do not overfill dust bag or serious fire may result. Never leave
a dust bag containing dust unattended. Sanding dust can spontaneously ignite and cause a fire
or explosion. Use only genuine
Clarke American Sanders replacement bags.
CAUTION:
An overfilled dust bag may effect machine balance and performance. Do not handle or
disturb dust bag and elbow while
sanding or damage to the floor
may occur.

Clarke® American Sanders FloorCrafter Operator's Manual
Sanding Cuts and Sandpaper
Initial Cut
Final Cuts
The purpose of the initial cut is to remove old finish
and gross imperfections on the floor surface. The
sanding equipment should be adjusted to heavy
sanding pressure setting and a coarse abrasive
belt should be used. If the surface is severely
damaged by deep scratches, preexisting dwell
marks, uneven planks, etc., it may be necessary
to sand across or diagonally to the grain to restore
evenness to the surface. If these conditions are
not present, the initial cut should be done in the
direction of the grain.
The purpose of a finishing cut is to remove the
scratches produced during the initial cut. Use a
fine (60 - 80 grit) grain abrasive and a reduced
sanding pressure setting.
If glazing, loading, or burning takes place immediately into an initial cut, select a coarser abrasive.
If this should occur during an initial cut, the
abrasive has dulled and must be replaced.
If glazing or burning should occur immediately into
a finishing cut, reduce the sanding pressure. If it
should occur during a finishing cut, the abrasive
has dulled and must be replaced.
If the surface remains rough after a finishing cut, it
may be necessary to use an even finer grain of
abrasive (80 - 100 grit). Care should be taken in
selecting the grit size of the abrasive. A very fine
grain will close the pores on a wood floor making
admission of a stain difficult.

Chatter Wave Prevention
Clarke Sanders are designed and manufactured to the most
rigid tolerances. However, after a finishing cut it is possible to
see “chatter” or “waves”.
The best guarantee to remove the chatter is to finish the floor
with a rotating horizontal sander, such as Clarke’s Sander 16.
To minimize chatter when using a belt or drum sander the
following steps should be taken:
1. DRUM MARKS...are caused by the operator lowering the
drum to the floor without forward traverse. These marks
should be removed by cutting at a 45 degree angle to the
mark. Cutting at the mark while maintaining the same
path will only increase the mark depth and width.
(See figure 14)
2. UNEVEN WALKING SPACE...can leave lengthy “waves”.
The machine cuts more material during the slower pace.
Pay particular attention to a steady, even pace.
3. EXCESSIVE LIGHT CUTS...may reveal high spots on the
paper/contact wheel and cause chatter. Take a heavier
cut and increase the pace.
Figure 14
4. DEBRIS...lodged between the paper and the drum will
leave chatter. On a belt sander, debris may be adhered
to the drum. Insure the drum is clean and free of debris
before placing the paper on.
5. ABRASIVE QUALITY...may vary. Belt seams can be
thicker on low quality paper and cause chatter. Use only
Clarke specified sandpaper. Store abrasive according
to manufacturers recommendation.
PROPER CARE OF YOUR MACHINE CAN MINIMIZE
CHATTER AND WAVES.
1. V-BELTS...can cause vibration and chatter if they are of
low quality. Use only belts specified by Clarke.
2. TRUCK AND CASTER WHEELS...with flat spots, out-ofroundness, or debris adhered to their surface can cause
“waves” or a “chatter effect”. Always clean and inspect
all wheels before starting to sand, and before the finish
cut. Replace or true the wheels if found to be out-ofround. Never allow the sander to stand on hard
surfaces for lengthy periods of time.
3. DUST PICK-UP SHOES...may need adjusted differently
for different materials that are to be sanded. An improperly adjusted shoe will leave trailing debris that will be
run over by the wheels and cause “random waves”.
4. CONTACT WHEELS (DRUMS)...may be out-of-round and
cause “chatter”. Contact your Clarke dealer for assistance to true or replace the drum.
Page
14
5. BEARINGS...in the motor, drum, or fan system
may become worn and induce vibration which
could cause “chatter”.
6. PULLEYS...that are damaged or severly worn can
induce vibration and cause “chatter”. Contact your
Clarke dealer for assistance.
7. SANDPAPER TENSION...should always be
released when the machine is shut off for 10
minutes or longer to avoid compression of the
drum.
NOTE: Clarke is not responsibile for rework of
floors that are unacceptable to the customer. It
is your responsibility to insure your equipment
is in proper operating order, and that you use
the right machine for the job.

Sander Adjustment Procedures
DANGER:
Electrocution could occur if maintenance and repairs are performed
on a unit that is not properly disconnected from the power source.
Disconnect the power supply before attempting any maintenance
or service.
DANGER:
Moving parts of this machine can
cause serious injury and/or damage. Keep hands, feet and loose
clothing away from all moving parts
of the sander.
The following information provides details on how to
adjust different features/controls of the sander.
Figure 15
Dust Shoe
To adjust the dust shoe follow this procedure:
1. Disconnect machine from power supply.
2. Loosen the three screws fastening the dust shoe
to the chassis.
3. Adjust the dust shoe down to reduce clearance.
4. Adjust the dust shoe up to increase clearance.
5. Align the dust shoe to the chassis and tighten
screws. (See figure 15)
Sanding Pressure
There are three pressure settings to select from:
heavy, medium and light. The lower the position the
heavier the setting. To change settings, raise the
lever and place in desired position. (See figure 16)
Figure 16
Leveling the Drum
CAUTION:
The belt tracking maybe adversely
effected if machine is operated
unleveled.
The machine is leveled at the factory set and no
adjustments should be necessary. After any maintenance is performed to the carriage system, the pointer
on the leveling bracket must be returned to original mark
(See figure 17).
If it is necessary to reset level after replacing wheels
follow this procedure:
1. Lower the contact wheel to the floor.

2. Drive the adjusting screw in, to sand heavier on
the left (the drive belt side). Back the adjusting
screw out, to sand heavier on the right (the side
opposite the drive belts). Test the setting on an
even surface. Make further adjustments if
necessary.
3. Mark new pointer location on main frame
Belt Tracking
WARNING:
AA
Injury to the operator could
occur if any machine adjustments are made while the
motor is running. Do not
attempt to make any adjustments while the machine is
plugged in or running.
AB
To adjust the belt tracking follow this procedure:
1. Locate the belt tracking adjuster screw. (See
figure 18A)
2. Hold the belt tracking adjuster screw and loosen
the locknut. (See figure 18B).
3. Rotate the tracking adjuster screw counterclockwise to move the belt in.
4. Rotate the tracking adjuster screw clockwise to
move the belt out.
Figure 18
5. Test adjustment and tighten the locknut.
Operating Control
To increase the travel or extend the reach on the grip
control follow this procedure:
1. Loosen the locknut on the control rod.
(See figure 19A)
2. Screw the control rod adjuster (See figure 19B)
"In" until the desired reach is found.
3. Tighten the locknut.

Sanding Adjustment Procedures (Cont)
To decrease the travel or reduce the reach on the
grip control follow this procedure:
1. Loosen the locknut on the control rod.
(See figure 20A)
2. Screw the control rod adjuster"out" until
desired reach is found.
3. Tighten the locknut.
Routine Maintenance
The following items need to be periodically inspected
and maintained to keep your sander in good working
condition.
A
Sanding Chamber
Periodically blow out the sanding chamber to prevent
large accumulations of debris which could interfere
with the performance of the tension roller.
Figure 20
Wheels
Periodically remove the debris from the truck and
caster wheels. Debris can cause waves on a sanded
surface.
Dust Bag
Remove the dust bag from the machine and shake it
thoroughly to remove the sanding dust from the dust
bag. Turn the dust bag inside out and machine wash
in cold water to prevent pore blockage and loss of
dust recovery.
Drive Belt
Drive belt tension is factory set and should not require
adjustment. Periodically check the drive belt tension.
Proper belt tension is achieved when 10 lbs. of force
at the mid-span of the belt produces ½ inch of
deflection.
Figure 21
To increase belt tension, release tension using quick
release lever (See Figure 6).
Turn the adjustment screw "OUT" (See Figure 21) one
quarter turn. Restore tension using quick release
lever and check adjustment. Repeat this process if
necessary. To lower tension, the adjustment screw is
turned "IN".

according to the following schedule:
Guide rollers
Idler pulley
Fan shaft
Tension roller
Arbor shaft
Motor shaft
after 1st 650 hrs.
after 1st 1500 hrs.
