IMPORTANT INFORMATION
General usage description
The Mastercraft® Air-powered Dual-action Sander features a housing made of durable, lightweight
aluminum. The tool is designed with comfortable and ergonomic grips. An air regulator is attached
for speed control, and a dust-proof mat is attached for filtering the debris away from the tool. The tool
is useful for sanding wood, metal, fiberglass, and auto body filler. This sander provides a quiet
sanding action for a smooth pattern-free finish.
Compatible compressor and air tool
GUIDELINES FOR PROPER USAGE AND OPERATION
Always ensure the use of appropriately matched air tools and compressors. The compressor should
be able to supply a minimal air delivery of 2.8 SCFM @ 90 PSI to ensure the compressor can run
continuously with the Mastercraft Air-powered Dual-action Sander. Using tools or a combination of
tools that together or separately require more than the air compressor can deliver will reduce
performance and could void the compressor or tool guarantee/warranty.
