SAFETY
Additional Safety for Disc Sanders
READ and understand this
entire manual before using
this machine. Serious personal injury may occur
if safety and operational
information is not understood and followed. DO
NOT risk your safety by
not reading!
Use this and other machinery with caution
and respect. Always consider safety first,
as it applies to your individual working
conditions. No list of safety guidelines can
be complete—every shop environment is
different. Failure to follow guidelines could
result in serious personal injury, damage
to equipment or poor work results.
1. RESPIRATOR AND SAFETY GLASSES. Always wear a respirator and safety glasses while operating
the machine. Dust and chips are created when sanding. Some debris will be ejected, becoming
hazards to the eyes and lungs.
2. DUST COLLECTION SYSTEM. Never operate the sander without an adequate dust collection system
in place and running.
3. CLOTHING. DO NOT wear loose clothing while operating this machine. Roll up or button sleeves at
the cuff.
4. HAND PROTECTION. DO NOT place hands near, or in contact with, sanding disc during operation.
DO NOT allow fingers to get pinched between the workpiece and the table. This may pull the
operator’s hand into the machine and cause serious injury!
5. MINIMUM STOCK DIMENSIONS. Do not sand any stock thinner than 1⁄16", narrower than 1⁄8", or
shorter than 9".
6. INSPECTING WORKPIECES. Always inspect workpiece for nails, staples, knots, and other
imperfections that could be dislodged and thrown from the machine during sanding operations.
7. FEEDING STOCK. Firmly grasp the workpiece in both hands and ease it into the machine using
light pressure. DO NOT jam the workpiece into the machine during operation. Feed the workpiece
against the direction of rotation. DO NOT sand tapered or pointed stock with the point facing the
feed direction. Never sand more than one piece of stock at a time.
8. UNATTENDED OPERATION. Never leave the machine running unattended.
9. REPLACING SANDPAPER. Replace sanding paper when it becomes worn. DO NOT operate the
sander with a damaged or badly worn sandpaper.
10. MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENTS. Perform machine inspections and maintenance service
promptly when called for. Disconnect power before performing maintenance or adjustments on the
sander.
11. EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES. Any problem that is concerned with any moving parts or accessories,
must be investigated and corrected with the power disconnected, and after all moving parts have
come to a complete stop.

W1708 Owner's Manual (Mfg. 10/07+)
Cleanup
The unpainted surfaces of your machine are
coated with a heavy-duty rust preventative that
prevents corrosion during shipment and storage.
ALWAYS work in wellventilated areas far from
possible ignition sources
when using solvents to
clean machinery. Many
solvents are toxic when
inhaled or ingested. Use
care when disposing
of waste rags and
towels to be sure they
DO NOT create fire or
environmental hazards.
This rust preventative has been your machine's
close ally and guardian since it left the factory.
If your machine arrived to you free of rust, then
be thankful that the rust preventative protected
it during its journey...and try to stay thankful as
you clean it off, because it can be challenging
to remove if you are unprepared and impatient.
Plan on spending some time cleaning your
machine. The time you spend doing this will
reward you with smooth sliding parts and a
better appreciation for the proper care of your
machine's unpainted surfaces.
NOTICE
Avoid chlorine-based solvents, such as acetone or brake parts cleaner that may damage painted surfaces. Always follow the
manufacturer’s instructions when using any
type of cleaning product.
Before cleaning, gather the following:
• Disposable Rags
• Cleaner/degreaser
• Safety glasses & disposable gloves
Basic steps for removing rust preventative:
Note: In a pinch, automotive degreasers, mineral
spirits or WD•40 can be used to remove rust preventative. Before using these products, though,
test them on an inconspicuous area of your paint
to make sure they will not damage it.
1. Put on safety glasses and disposable gloves.
2. Coat all surfaces that have rust
preventative with a liberal amount of your
cleaner/degreaser and let them soak for
few minutes.
3. Wipe off the surfaces. If your cleaner/
degreaser is effective, the rust
preventative will wipe off easily.
NEVER clean with gasoline
or other petroleumbased solvents. Most have
low flash points, which
make them extremely
flammable. A risk of
explosion and burning
exists if these products
are used. Serious personal
injury may occur if this
warning is ignored!
Note: To clean off thick coats of rust
preventative on flat surfaces, such as
tables, use a PLASTIC paint scraper to
scrape off the majority of the coating
before wiping it off with your rag. (Do not
use a metal scraper or you may scratch
your machine.)
4. Repeat Steps 2–3 as necessary until clean,
then coat all unpainted surfaces with a
quality metal protectant to prevent rust.

SETUP
Although there are many ways to successfully
remove the rust preventative, these instructions
walk you through what works well for us.
W1708 Owner's Manual (Mfg. 10/07+)
Site Considerations
Weight Load
Physical Environment
Refer to Specifications on Page 2 for the weight of your
machine. Make sure that the surface upon which the
machine is placed will bear the weight of the machine,
additional equipment that may be installed on the
machine, and the heaviest workpiece that will be used.
Additionally, consider the weight of the operator and
any dynamic loading that may occur when operating the
machine.
The physical environment where your
machine is operated is important for
safe operation and the longevity of its
components. For best results, operate
this machine in a dry environment that is
free from excessive moisture, hazardous
chemicals, airborne abrasives, or extreme
conditions. Extreme conditions for this type
of machinery are generally those where
the ambient temperature range exceeds
41°–104°F; the relative humidity range
exceeds 20–95% (non-condensing); or the
environment is subject to vibration, shocks,
or bumps.
SETUP
Space Allocation
Consider the largest size of workpiece that will be
processed through this machine and provide enough
space around the machine for adequate operator material
handling or the installation of auxiliary equipment. With
permanent installations, leave enough space around the
machine to open or remove doors/covers as required by
the maintenance and service described in this manual.
See below for working clearances.
MAKE your shop “child safe.” Ensure
that your workplace is inaccessible
to children by closing and locking
all entrances when you are away.
NEVER allow untrained visitors in
your shop when assembling, adjusting or operating equipment.
Electrical Installation
Place this machine near an existing power
source. Make sure all power cords are
protected from traffic, material handling,
moisture, chemicals, or other hazards.
Make sure to leave access to a means of
disconnecting the power source or engaging
a lockout/tagout device.
Lighting
Lighting around the machine must be
adequate enough that operations can be
performed safely. Shadows, glare, or strobe
effects that may distract or impede the
operator must be eliminated.

W1708 Owner's Manual (Mfg. 10/07+)
Mounting
We strongly recommend that you mount your sander to a
workbench to prevent it from moving during operation.
Before doing so, remove the included feet. An unexpected
movement could result in an injury or property damage.
When you have chosen the location to mount the sander,
the strongest option is a "Through Mount" where holes are
drilled all the way through the workbench, and hex bolts,
washers, and hex nuts are used to secure the machine
(see Figure 4).

Dust Collection
NfibY\eZ_
Recommended CFM at 2" Dust Port:................98 CFM
Figure 5. Example of a direct mount.
Do not confuse this CFM recommendation with the rating
of the dust collector. To determine the CFM at the
dust port, you must take into account many variables,
including the CFM rating of the dust collector, the length
of hose between the dust collector and the machine, the
amount of branches or Y's, and the amount of other open
lines throughout the system. Explaining this calculation
is beyond the scope of this manual. If you are unsure of
your system, consult an expert or purchase a good dust
collection "how-to" book.
The W1708 Model features a 2" dust port

Sanding Tips
• Replace the sandpaper with a progressively higher
grit to achieve a finer finish.
Extend the life of the sandpaper by regularly using
PRO-STICK® abrasive belt cleaners (see Accessories
on Page 20).
•
When sanding workpieces with a bow or crown,
place the high point up on the table (prevents the
workpiece from rocking) and take very light passes.

Choosing Sandpaper
Stock Inspection and
Requirements
The Model W1708 uses a 12" adhesive-backed
sanding disc.
Some workpieces are not safe or may require
modification before they are safe to sand.
Before sanding, inspect all workpieces for the
following:
There are many types of sanding discs to
choose from. We recommend aluminum oxide
for general workshop environments. Below is a
chart that groups abrasives into different classes
and shows which grits fall into each class.
Grit
24-36
40-60
80-100
Type
Very Coarse
Coarse
Medium
120-180
220-360
Fine
Very Fine
OPERATIONS
The general rule of thumb is to sand a
workpiece with progressively higher grit
numbers, with no one grit increase of more
than 50 grits at a time. Avoid skipping grits; the
larger the grit increase, the harder it will be to
remove the scratches from the previous grit.
Ultimately, the type of wood you use and your
stage of finish will determine the best grit types
to install on your sander.
•
Material Type: This machine is intended
for ONLY sanding natural and man-made
wood products. This machine is NOT
designed to sand metal, glass, stone, tile,
drywall or cementitious backerboard.
•
Foreign Objects: Nails, staples, dirt,
rocks and other foreign objects are often
embedded in wood. While sanding, these
objects can become dislodged and tear the
sanding belt. Always visually inspect your
workpiece for these items. If they can't be
removed, DO NOT sand the workpiece.
•
Excessive glue or finish: Sanding
workpieces with excess glue or finish
will load up the abrasive, reducing its
usefullness and lifespan.
•
Workpiece Dimensions: DO NOT sand
boards less than 9" long, 1⁄8" wide and 1⁄16"
thick to prevent damage to the workpiece
and to reduce the risk of your hands
contacting the abrasive belt (see Figure 9).

Attaching Sandpaper
The Model W1708 sander accepts 12" diameter adhesivebacked sanding discs. These are available in a variety of
grits (refer to Page 20).
The sanding disc sticks to the surface of the cast iron
disc platen, using the pressure sensitive adhesive backing
(PSA). The sandpaper can be replaced without removing
the table.
To attach sandpaper, do these steps:
1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER!
2. Peel-off the old sandpaper, and clean the disc
surface with mineral spirits, and wipe dry.
3. Peel-back the protective layer on one-half of the
sandpaper disc and fold it against the remaining
half.
Figure 10. Slipping covered sandpaper
between disc and table.
4. Slip the half with the protective layer between the
disc and the table edge (Figure 10).
OPERATIONS
5. Position the exposed adhesive on the upper half of
the disc that extends above the table. Once it is
positioned evenly across the disc, press the adhesive
onto the surface.
6. Now rotate the disc so the lower half is above the
table and peel-off the other half of the protective
paper (Figure 11), and press the sanding disc against
the disc so adhesion is complete.
Figure 11. Removing paper backing.

W1708 Owner's Manual (Mfg. 10/07+)
Disc Sanding
To perform 90˚disc sanding, do these steps:
1. Set the tilt angle of the table to 0˚. The angle can
be set with the angle gauge on the sander or with a
protractor for greater accuracy.
2. Set the miter gauge to 90˚, then place one face of
the workpiece firmly against the miter gauge.
3. Turn the sander ON, then ease the workpiece into
the left half of the sanding disc that is spinning
downward, making sure the workpiece is against the
disc, as shown in Figure 12.
4. Move the workpiece side-to-side across the
downward spinning surface of the disc to prevent
build-up on the sanding disc and burning of the
workpiece.
Figure 12. 90˚disc sanding.
5. Turn the sander OFF.
OPERATIONS
Note: For sanding curves or irregular shapes, remove
the miter gauge from the disc table. Always keep the
workpiece on the side of the wheel that is rotating
down toward the table. This will keep the workpiece
from flying out of your hands from the rotational
forces.
Miter Sanding
The most efficient way to get a perfect miter is to cut
the workpiece slightly long and sand it to the desired
dimension. Miter sanding can be done easily with the
miter gauge.
To perform miter sanding, do these steps:
1. Loosen the knob on the miter gauge and adjust the
angle to the desired point. Tighten the knob.
2. Slide the miter gauge into its slot and use it to hold
your workpiece in position.
Note: The miter gauge can be used in either
direction in the slot to achieve the proper relation
of the workpiece to the disc.
3. Turn the sander ON, and with light, but firm
pressure, push the workpiece slowly into the downspin (left) side of the rotating disc (see Figure 13).
When finished, turn the sander OFF.

Angle Sanding
To perform angle sanding operations, do these steps:
1. Loosen the handles securing the table, use the angle
gauge to set the tilt angle, then tighten the table
lock handles.
2. Turn the sander ON.
3. Use the miter gauge to hold your workpiece in
position, and with light, but firm pressure, push
the workpiece slowly into the down-spin side of the
rotating disc (see Figure 14).
