Switching On And Off (Fig. G)
Hold the tool firmly with two hands to
maintain control of the tool at start up and during use,
and until the wheel or accessory stops rotating. Make
sure the wheel has come to a complete stop before
laying the tool down.
To switch the tool on, depress the trigger switch (1). To
switch the tool off, release the trigger switch.
For longer, more comfortable use, depress the lock-on

Paint Remover Pad
Set the desired speed on the speed control dial (2).
Hold the tool firmly with two hands and depress the
trigger switch (1).
Apply the paint remover pad (8) to the workpiece, apply
pressure, and move the paint remover along the
workpiece. Do not apply excessive pressure or hold the
pad on one spot for too long. The painted surface may
get damaged.
NOTE: For best results and a more even wear, keep pad flat
or at a very slight angle (5-10 degrees). The sharper an
angle, the more the pad will wear unevenly.
Paint and debris can be removed from the pad by
momentarily running it on a concrete sidewalk or block.
Ensure the surface is stable and the pad is flat on the
surface. Do not hold the block while cleaning. Do not
immerse the pad in a paint removal solvent.
NOTE: Apply just enough pressure to remove paint and let
the tool do the work, excessive pressure will reduce pad life.
Stop use of paint remover pad before
the mesh fibre of the pad is worn down to the plastic

Using The Sander

When sanding painted surfaces (see Additional Safety Rules
for Paint Removal), you may find that the sandpaper clogs
with paint. The paint remover pad (8) may work much better to
remove paint before sanding.
Set the desired speed on the speed control dial (2).
Hold the tool firmly with two hands and depress the
trigger switch (1).
Apply the sanding disc to the workpiece and apply slight
pressure only. Be sure to check your work often. This
sander is capable of removing material rapidly, especially
with coarse paper.
NOTE: To produce the best finish possible, start with coarse
grit sandpaper and change gradually to finer and finer paper.
Vacuum and wipe the surface with a tack cloth between grit

Spindle Lock

To prevent accidental operation, turn
off and unplug tool before performing the
following operations. Failure to do this could result
in serious personal injury.
The spindle lock button (7) is provided to prevent the
spindle from rotating when installing or removing wheels.
Operate the spindle lock only when the tool is turned off
and the wheel has come to a complete stop.
Do not engage the spindle lock while the
tool is operating. Damage to the tool will result and
attached accessory may spin off possibly resulting in
Dust Collection (Fig. H)
To reduce the risk of injury, turn unit off
and disconnect it from power source before installing
and removing accessories, before adjusting or when
making repairs.
Empty vacuum frequently, especially
when sanding resin coated surfaces such as
polyurethane, varnish, shellac, etc. Dispose of coated
dust particles according to the finish manufacturer's
guidelines, or place in a metal can with a tight fitting
metal lid. Remove coated dust particles from the
premises daily. The accumulation of fine sanding
dust particles may self-ignite and cause fire.
Slide the vacuum adaptor (10) into the dust port (6).
Attach vacuum hose (13) to the vacuum adaptor.
Hints Of Optimal Use

Let the tool work at its own pace. Placing too much force
on the tool can cause the motor to slow down or
overheat, and will wear the paint remover pad and
sanding disc prematurely.
The edges of the paint remover pad can be used to
prepare underneath lap siding.
