Connecting to Makita vacuum cleaner
Cleaner sanding operations can be performed by connecting the belt sander to
Makita vacuum cleaner.
When connecting to Makita vacuum cleaner, an optional hose 28 mm in inner
diameter is necessary.
The tool should not be in contact with the workpiece surface when you
turn the tool on or off. Otherwise a poor sanding finish or damage of the
belt may result.
Hold the tool firmly with both hands. Turn the tool on and wait until it attains full
speed. Then gently place the tool on the workpiece surface. Keep the belt
flush with the workpiece at all times and move the tool back and forth.
Never force the tool. The weight of the tool applies adequate pressure. Exces-
sive pressure may cause stalling, overheating of the motor, burning of the
workpiece and possible kickback.
Sanding shoe (optional accessory)
The sanding shoe readily allows you to sand workpieces more evenly.
