ASSEMBLY cont.
PAPER PUNCH (See Fig. 5)
A paper punch template is included with sander so you can punch properly aligned holes
into the sandpaper. This is done after the paper is installed onto the sander.
To punch holes, line up the front and side of the sander over the paper punch template as
shown in Fig. 5, then lower the sander onto the template while applying pressure. Make sure
the holes are punched all the way through the paper and clear the holes in the sander's
cushion and platen.
NOTE: Punching holes properly is a necessary step for the dust collection
system to operate properly.
