SELECTING
THE CORRECT
GRIT OF SANDPAPER
Use a coarse grit to sand down rough finishes,
medium
grit to smooth the work
and fine grit to finish off.
It is best to make a trial run on a scrap piece of material to determine
the
optimum
grades of sandpaper
for a particular job.

SANDING
This detail sander can be used for most sanding operations
on materials
such
as wood, plastic, metal and painted surfaces.
The removal rate and the sanding
pattern are determined
by the choice of sandpaper
and the work surface.
A sandpaper
sheet that has been used for metal should
not be used for
other materials.
3.
4.
Always attach the dust bag or a suitable
adapter and vacuum when sanding
with the detail sander
WARNING:
Do not touch sander vents after prolonged
use; the gear box
could be very hot.
1.
Wear safety goggles,
a dust mask, and hearing protection.
2.
Apply uniform sanding
pressure to extend the life of the sandpapers.
Intensifying
the sanding pressure does not lead to an increase of the sanding
capacity,
but instead it increases wear on the machine and the sandpaper.
Use only the tip or an edge of the sandpaper
for precise sanding of edges,
corners and hard to reach areas.
When selectively
sanding on one spot, the sandpaper
can heat up
considerably.
Remove the tool from the surface
periodically
to permit the
sandpaper
to cool down.

CAUTION:
Where possible,
clamp smaller workpieces
to a workbench.
