Foreseen Use of Tool
This tool is designed for the purpose of cleaning or sanding
of a variety of materials typically metal, wood, plastic
materials, etc. The dual rotary orbital action reduces the
amount of abrasive grinding marks and hence is primarily a
finishing sanding tool. It can be used with a variety of grades
of 150 mm (6” diameter) abrasive discs which, according
to pad fitted to the tool, can be self adhesive or Velcro
attached. If fitted to the dust collecting system this should
always be used. The system may be integral or required to
be fixed to an external vacuum source.
The machine fitted with dust collection should not be used
with water. If use with water is required, water can act as
a dust suppressor and the dust collector would not be
required.
Do not use the tool for any other purpose to that for which
it has been designed and use only abrasive discs as described.
Do not modify the tool for any other use or for its use as
a sander without first consulting the manufacturer or his
authorised distributor.
Putting Into Service
Air Supply
Use a clean lubricated air supply that will give a measured
air pressure at the tool of 90 p.s.i./6.3 bar when the tool
is running with the trigger/lever fully depressed. Use
recommended hose size and length. It is recommended that
the tool is connected to the air supply as shown in figure
1. Do not connect the tool to the air line system without
incorporating an easy to reach and operate air shut off valve.
The air supply should be lubricated. It is strongly
recommended that an air filter, regulator, lubricator (FRL) is
used as shown in Figure 1 as this will supply clean, lubricated
air at the correct pressure to the tool. Details of such
equipment can be obtained from your supplier. If such
equipment is not used then the tool should be lubricated by
shutting off the air supply to the tool, depressurising the line
by pressing the trigger on the tool. Disconnect the air line
and pour into the hose adaptor a teaspoonful (5ml) of a
Work Stations
The tool should only be used as a hand held
hand operated tool. It is always recommended
that the tool is used when standing on a solid
floor. It can be used in other positions but
before any such use the operator must be in
a secure position having a firm grip and
footing and be aware of the safety rules to
be obeyed when using the sander.

suitable pneumatic motor lubricating oil preferably
incorporating a rust inhibitor. Reconnect tool to air supply
and run tool slowly for a few seconds to allow air to circulate
the oil. If tool is used frequently lubricate on daily basis and
if tool starts to slow or lose power.
It is recommended that the air pressure at the tool whilst
the tool is running is 90 p.s.i./6.3 bar. The tool can run at
lower and higher pressures with the maximum permitted
working air pressure of 100 p.s.i./7 bar.
Operating
Select a suitable abrasive disc (see Section "Foreseen use
of the tool") and make sure that it is fixed securely to the
tool. Connect to suitable air supply as recommended. Make
sure that the side handle is tightened securely.
Apply the sander lightly to the work and allow the abrasive
disc to cut. Take great care when sanding around sharp
edges and surfaces to avoid the disc snagging i.e. the disc
may be brought to an abrupt stop or considerably slowed
that will cause the tool to kick in the hands.
It is always recommended to use safety glasses and a
breathing mask. The sanding of certain materials may create
a hazardous dust which may require special breathing
equipment. Check before using the tool. Even if the machine
has a low noise level the actual sanding process may cause
a noise level such that ear protectors will be required. If
there are sharp areas on the material being sanded safety
gloves are recommended.
Do not continue to use abrasive discs that are worn or
clogged. This will make the sanding process inefficient and
the need to apply unnecessarily high forces to the tool.
Do not use undersized or oversized sanding discs. The disc
should be no more than 1/4" larger in diameter that the
pad, and not smaller than the pad.
Dismantling & Assembly Instructions
