OPERATING SANDER:
1. Don all personal protective equipment: safety glasses / face shield, hearing protection, proper
footwear (closed toe / heal shoes). Remove all jewelry; loose clothing and tie back hair.
2. Ensure the 0n/Off switch is in the “off” position and plug the machine into properly grounded
power source.
3. Replace any abrasive belts / discs that are worn, frayed or excessively worn in spots.
4. Adjust the work rest - the work rest should be calibrated to a maximum of 3mm (1/16”) from the
face of the abrasive belt. Ensure the work rest is secured to support the work piece.
4. Clean / clear work area/surfaces of unused tools / material. Place material to be sanded onto
the work rest, well away from the sanding belt / disc. Never start the machine with the stock in
contact with the sanding belt / disc.
5. Sanding material:
a) Turn on power and let machine come to full speed. Push the stop button after each use. Do
not leave the sander running unattended.
b) Turn on the local exhaust ventilation.
c) Use both hands to hold the material. Feed the work piece against the direction of the
sanding belt / disc rotation.
d) Maintain a 10cm (4 inch) distance from the sanding belt / disc with fingers and use a jig or
holding device for smaller pieces.
6. When work has been completed, turn off the sander and stay till machine comes to a complete
stop.
7. When the machine has stopped remove any debris with a stick or brush. Remove material
from the table and clean the area. If there is a lot of saw dust, wear a dust mask while cleaning
the area.
