Frequently Asked Questions

What can I sand on this sander?

Machine is intended for wood. Plastic and composites are probably OK but watch for damage to abrasive. Do not use with metal (including, but not limited to iron, steel, aluminum, and copper) under any circumstances. If you are generating sparks, stop immediately.

What grit is on the sanding surfaces? Can I change it?

The belt is typically 120 grit, and disk is 80. The disk cannot be changed, as the adhesive backing is single-use only. The belt can be changed if you require a different grit. Please remember to return the lab-owned belt when you're finished.
