Orbit Diameter THANK YOU FOR BUYING A RYOBI SANDER. Your new sander has been engineered and manufactured to Ryobi's high standard for dependability, ease of operation, and operator safety. Properly cared for, it will give you years of rugged, trouble-free performance.
RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION DOUBLE INSULATION Your Ryobi power tool is double insulated. This means you are separated from the tool's electrical system by two complete sets of electrical insulation. This extra layer of insulation is intended to protect the user from electrical shock due to a break in the wiring insulation.
33. DRUGS, ALCOHOL, MEDICATION. Do not operate tool while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or any medication. 34. When servicing use only identical Ryobi replacement parts. 35. POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
Your sander is suitable for sanding with coarse, medium, and fine grit sandpaper. It will produce a fine scratch free finish when used to sand with the grain on wood surfaces. It has been designed so that flush corner sanding on three sides of the sander is possible.
WARNING: YOUR SANDER SHOULD NEVER BE CONNECTED TO POWER SUPPLY WHEN YOU ARE ASSEMBLING PARTS, MAKING ADJUSTMENTS, ASSEMBLING OR REPLACING SANDPAPER, CLEANING, OR WHEN NOT IN USE. DISCONNECTING SANDER WILL PREVENT ACCIDENTAL STARTING THAT COULD CAUSE SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY. INSTALLING NON-ADHESIVE SANDPAPER See Figure 2.
WARNING: ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES OR SAFETY GLASSES WITH SIDE SHIELDS WHEN OPERATING YOUR SANDER. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN FOREIGN OBJECTS BEING THROWN INTO YOUR EYES, RESULTING IN POSSIBLE SERIOUS INJURY. IF THE SANDING OPERATION IS DUSTY, ALSO WEAR A FACE OR DUST MASK. APPLICATIONS (Use only for the purposes listed below) 1.
ORBITAL MOTION Orbital motion is ideal for fast cutting action when removing old finishes, smoothing rough wood, cutting stock down to required dimensions, or for finishing surfaces to be painted. As shown in figure 6, the sandpaper moves in tiny circles at a very high speed, allowing the sander to move easily.
WARNING: WHEN SERVICING USE ONLY IDENTICAL RYOBI REPLACEMENT PARTS. USE OF ANY OTHER PARTS MAY CREATE A HAZARD OR CAUSE PRODUCT DAMAGE. GENERAL Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most plastics are susceptible to various types of commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use.
