Disc Sander

The disc sander is for finishing edges and flat surfaces. This was hacked together from a smaller disc sander.

Safety

  • Wear safety glasses always.
  • Wear a mask if you make lots of dust.

Features

No “ON” switch, turns on when plugged in. Spins in a clockwise direction - so best to use the right hand side of the disk (so your work is pushed into the bed, rather than into your face).

Sandpaper should be regularly changed.

How to Use

Place timber butt up against the flat guide and slowly edge it into the spinning disc. Keep fingers away from disc when holding timber. Move the timber across the radius of the disc rather than keeping it in one place.
