Follow Shop Safety Rules.
Sand on down side of the disc (the disk would
rotate downwards) therefore forcing the stock
down against the table and holding the wood in
place.
Keep material moving and sand lightly, a sanding
disc or belt in good condition requires little
pressure. Pushing too hard against the disk or belt
may cause an operator’s hand to slip and press into
the disk / belt which can lead to injury.
ALWAYS use the table to support the material.
Always use clamps or jigs to hold small pieces.
Small pieces can be jerked out of an operator’s
hand easily, which could lead to injury.
Ensure the abrasive disc is secured and centred as
closely as possible.
Keep fingers / hands a minimum of 2 inches from
the sanding surface.
NEVER put a finger or hand between the disc or
belt and the table. The sander can pull a finger in
quickly and literally sand it off.
NEVER sand the face of thin materials.
Only the instructor will make adjustments or
changes the abrasive discs / belts.
ALWAYS sand to a line and stop when you get to it.
Do not leave a sander until it has come to a COMPLETE STOP.
