Sanding Technique

If the machinery does not sand smoothly, call the office immediately. You are responsible for all damage to hire machines.

  1. Make sure area to be sanded is fully and safely prepared. Make sure area to be sanded is clear. Check electrical supply is safe and operational.
  2. Keep your back straight in order to avoid damaging your back. Kneel down and work or work with bent knees.
  3. Never force the sanding machine! if it is not cutting, change to fresh abrasive.
  4. Gently sweep the machine over the area to be sanded. Heavy handed edging can lead to ringing in the wood.
  5. Start sanding at the highest grit to achieve your goal i.e. avoid sanding with 24grit if you can start at 40grit. This will avoid excess wood loss and sanding time.

WARNING! Use extreme caution when sanding near radiator pipes or cables. Edging machines can cut metal and cables in an instant.
