Tighten the spindle knob.
Fit the sanding belt (see section 6.3).
REMOVING THE SANDING BELT ASSEMBLY

Remove the spindle knob and lift the spindle belt assembly off.
Store the belt assembly in the pocket at the rear of the base.
INSTALLING SANDING SLEEVES OVER 1/2” DIAMETER (fig.4)
Fit the fan as in 5.1.1.
Install the table insert by sliding it into position over the fan. Ensure that the table insert is flush with the table.
Insert appropriate throat plate (see section 5.5.)
Slide the appropriate rubber sanding drum onto the spindle.
Slide the required sanding sleeve onto the drum.
Note: If the drum or sleeve proves difficult to slide on, apply talcum powder. Install the correct spindle washer and tighten the spindle nut, taking care not to overtighten.
INSTALLING 1/2” DIAMETER SANDING SLEEVES (fig.5)
Fit the fan as in 5.1.1.
Install the table insert, ensuring that the table insert is flush with the table.
Fit the 13mm throat plate.
Slide the 1/2” sanding sleeve over the spindle. (The rubber drum is not used). Install the upper spindle washer and tighten the spindle nut, taking care not to overtighten.
SELECTING THROAT PLATES AND UPPER SPINDLE WASHERS
WARNING! Incorrect throat plate selection could lead to debris being wedged between the abrasive surface and the insert and possible risk of injury.
NOTE: Always use the smallest throat plate that will fit over required drum.
WARNING! Ensure that you have read, understand and apply the safety instructions in Section 1.
SWITCHING ON and OFF
Switch on by means of the ”On” (I) switch and allow to run up to speed before use.
Switch off by pressing the “Off” (O) switch. This stands proud of the switch casing for emergency use.
The saw is fitted with a no-voltage-release switch: if the electric supply fails whilst the machine is running, it will not restart until the
“On” switch is pressed.
To true the front table: place a square (not provided) between the table and the belt (fig.7). If the angle is not 90°, loosen the table lock knobs (either side) and move the front table to the exact angle. Tighten the table lock knobs.
To adjust the front table angle: loosen the lock table knobs and move the table to the required angle (fig.8). Tighten the table lock knobs.
REMOVING/FITTING THE SANDING BELT
Slide the tension lever to the right to release belt tension (fig.9).
Remove the sanding belt.
Place the replacement sanding belt over the drums (fig.10). Ensure that the belt is centred on the drums. Slide the tensioning lever to the left to tension the belt.
Run the machine briefly to check that the belt is running true.
If the belt runs toward the table, turn the tracking knob 1/4 turn clockwise and vice versa (fig.11).
If the belt still runs out of true, repeat 6.3.6. until correct.
A vacuum cleaner may be connected to the extraction port to reduce airborne dust (fig.12).
No lubrication is required as all bearings are lubricated for life. Cleaning: DO NOT use abrasive or solvent cleaners; clean with a damp soapy cloth only.
NOTE: Even if coupled to a vacuum extraction system, dust is likely to collect in the recess in the table. Periodic cleaning is necessary to maintain the performance of the machine
