Tips & Tricks
- If you plan to sand a different material, make sure it won't produce any hazardous dust. If you're unsure, contact a manager.
- Check your workpiece constantly, as it is very easy to do too much and take off a lot of material at once.
- Always wear a mask when using this tool as a lot of fine dust is generated during the process.
