Safety Rules

In Addition to the shop safety rules the following safety rules should be followed:

  • Always sand on the downward motion side of the disc/belt. Never the upward motion side as this can throw your part upwards with tremendous force.
  • Always attempt to place your work against the rest on the disc and belt sanders and hold the work securely.
  • When using the horizontal belt sander, always sand so that the belt motion is away from you.
  • Do not operate machines with torn or ripped belts or disks.
  • Always sand on the down travel side of the disc / belt.
  • The rest should be adjusted so that it is no more than 1/8” from the disc.
  • Make adjustments only when the sander is at a complete stop.
  • Keep fingers away from the abrasive surface on the sander.
  • Avoid pressure against the disc. Feed stock into the abrasive material at a moderate rate of feed and pressure.
  • Stock that is 1” or smaller in length should not be sanded.
  • Use the disc sander for sanding outside curves or angles only.
  • The disc sander is NOT to be used for joinery, squaring stock, etc.
  • Any disc that is dull or loose should be repaired or replaced immediately.
