SAIIDPAPER SELECTION
S,e
ecting the correct size and type sandpaper is
an
ex:r'ernely
important step in achieving a high quality
saMed
f
inish. Aluminum oxide, silicone carbide
and
ctner synthetic abrasives are best
for
power
san-
drng. Other natural abrasives, such
as
flint
and
Eamet sandpaper are
too soft for economica use
in
power sanding.

MOTION SELECTION
The dual motion feature
of
your
sander
with
its
readily accessible
slide
lever
for
quick
motion
setting
provides required
motion
for
any
sanding
application.
lf
your particular
requirement
is
fast
cutting action
for
removing old
f
inishes, smoothing
rough wood,
cutting stock down
to
required
dimensions
or
for sanding of surfaces to be painted,
orbital motion is best suited.
For
f
ine
f
inish sanding
on work to be stained or varnished and
for
use with
polishing pad, straight tine motion
is
ideal.
