eLeCTrICAL INFOrMATION
WArNING
ALL ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS MUST BE DONE BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN. FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS
INJURY! ALL ADJUSTMENTS OR REPAIRS MUST BE DONE WITH THE EDGE SANDER DISCONNECTED FROM THE POWER SOURCE.
FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY!

GrOUNdING
The magnetic switch (A) Fig.3 is located on the front right side of the
sander. To turn the sander “On” press the green button (B). To stop the
sander, push the red emergency stop button (C). Once you push down
on the emergency stop button (C), twist the button clockwise until it
pops up, only then will you be able to restart the sander.
WArNING: YOUR EDGE SANDER MUST BE CONNECTED TO A
220V, 15-AMP. MINIMUM BRANCH CIRCUIT. FAILURE TO CONNECT
IN THIS WAY CAN RESULT IN INJURY FROM SHOCK OR FIRE.
This Edge Sander must be grounded. If it should malfunction or
breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric
current, to reduce the risk of electric shock. This Edge Sander is
equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor. Once
a plug is installed, the plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet
that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
WArNING: TO MAINTAIN PROPER GROUNDING OF YOUR EDGE
SANDER, DO NOT REMOVE OR ALTER THE PLUG GROUNDING
PRONG IN ANY MANNER.
Not all outlets are properly grounded. If you are not sure if your outlet
is properly grounded, have it checked by a qualified electrician.
WArNING: IF NOT PROPERLY GROUNDED, THIS EDGE SANDER
CAN CAUSE ELECTRICAL SHOCK, PARTICULARLY WHEN USED
IN DAMP LOCATIONS. TO AVOID SHOCK OR FIRE, IF THE POWER
CORD IS WORN OR DAMAGED IN ANY WAY, HAVE IT REPLACED
IMMEDIATELY.
220V OPerATION
A 220V plug is not supplied with this Edge Sander and must be
purchased at your local hardware store. The 220V plug must be a CSA
listed plug suitable for 220V operation. This plug is illustrated in Fig.1.
Contact your authorized service centre or qualified electrician to install
the plug.

WArNING! IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO USE AN ExTENSION
CORD, BUT IF IT IS NECESSARY, READ THE FOLLOWING.
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of power.
Depending on the length of extension cord needed, use the table (Fig.2)
to determine the minimum wire gauge (A.W.G-American Wire Gauge).
Use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3-prong grounding type
plugs and 3-hole receptacles which accept the tool’s plug.
For circuits that are further away from the electrical circuit box, the wire
thickness must be increased proportionately in order to deliver ample
voltage to the Edge Sander motor. The smaller the gauge of the
extension cord, the thicker it will be in diameter. Refer to Fig.2 for wire
length and size.

Warning! Disconnect power from power source before attempting to adjust this
edge sander.
To prolong the life of the sanding belt and to avoid any slippage of the belt off the
drums, proper sanding belt tracking is important to maintain the sanding belt
running straight on the drums. To adjust sanding belt tracking:
1) Make sure the sanding belt (A) Fig.8 is properly tensioned, the tension lever
(B) must be positioned to the right as shown.
2) Turn the edge sander On for a few seconds and observe the tracking of the
sanding belt.
3) If an adjustment is needed, move the tension lever (A) Fig.9 completely to the
left “loose” position as shown.
4) Lift the belt tracking locking lever (B) Fig.9 and turn the adjustment wheel (C)
to adjust belt tracking. Turn adjustment wheel clockwise to track belt
downwards on the roller, turn counterclockwise to track belt upwards on the
roller.
5) Lower belt tracking locking lever (B) Fig.9, move the tension lever (A)
completely to the right “tensioned” position. Turn the edge sander On for a few
seconds and observe the tracking of the sanding belt. Repeat until sanding belt
is tracking properly.
AdJUSTING THe STeeL PLATeN
Warning! Disconnect power from power source before attempting to adjust this
edge sander.
FIGUre 8
FIGUre 9
The steel platen (A) Fig.10 should be positioned 1/8” to 1/4” in front of the drive
roller and the idle roller. The steel platen is set properly at the factory but after
time an adjustment may be needed. To adjust the position of the steel platen:
1) Remove the sanding belt, refer to the next section below “Changing Sanding
Belt” for instructions.
2) Loosen the two hex. bolts (B) at the rear of the steel platen.
3) Using a straightedge or a combination square, position the steel platen from
1/8” to 1/4” in front of both rollers.
4) Retighten the two hex. bolts (B) at the rear of the steel platen and reinstall
sanding belt.

A sanding belt should be changed when it has worn out. Follow these instructions
to change a sanding belt:
1) Open the right side safety guards (A) Fig.11 by unclipping the two retaining clips
and flipping the safety guards backwards.
2) Loosen and remove the two lock knobs (B) and then remove the belt access
cover (C).

3) Pull the tension lever (A) Fig.12 completely to the left “loose” position as shown.
4) Remove the used sanding belt from both rollers.
5) The sanding belt runs counterclockwise on the rollers, before installing a new
sanding belt on the rollers, make sure the arrows on the inside of the sanding
belt correspond to the belt rotation label on the safety guard on the right side
of the machine.
6) Place and centre the new sanding belt around both rollers. Tension the sanding
belt by pulling the tension lever (A) Fig.12 completely to the right “tensioned”
position.
7) Reinstall the access cover and secure it with two lock knobs. Close both safety
guards and secure them with their retaining clips.
8) Once a new belt has been installed, check sanding belt tracking and adjust if
necessary.

CHANGING GrAPHITe PAd ON THe STeeL PLATeN
The graphite pad (A) Fig.13 will wear down and will eventually require replacement
once visible signs of wear are apparent. To change graphite pad:
1) Following the instructions for removing the sanding belt.
2) Pull the old graphite pad (A) Fig.13 off the steel platen. A strong solvent may
be required to unglue the graphite pad from the steel platen.
3) Install a new graphite pad on the steel platen. Some graphite pads have
adhesive backings, some will require using contact glue.
FIGUre 13
TIMING beLT TeNSION AdJUSTMeNT/rePLACeMeNT
Over time the timing belts which transfer power from the motor shaft to the drive
roller for oscillation movement may require tensionning. Loose timing belts will
cause intermittant operation of the oscillation feature and cause excessive noise
and vibration. In such situation the timing belts will need to be tensioned.
1) Loosen hex. nut (A) Fig.14.
2) Turn the hex. bolt (B) clockwise then retighten the hex. nut (A).
3) If a timing belt should break and replacement is required, loosen and remove
four hex. bolts (C) under the motor assembly and remove the cover (D).
Replace timing belt(s). Reinstall cover.
