Frequently Asked Questions

What are the accessories that come with this tool?

There’s a dust collector and a 120 grit sand paper included.

You will have to get the vacuum hose to attach for a better dust collection.

This sander leaves marks on my wood after sanding. What could be the reason?

The problem could be the way you operate it.

Remember that it is orbital and might leave the swirl marks since it is a heavy machine.

I recommend that you adjust the speed gradually until you ace the project.

And perhaps starting with the lower grit of the sand paper then advancing into a higher grit in treating the rougher surfaces can be helpful too to reduce the swirl marks.

Can I sand my wood ceiling with this sheet sander?

Yes you can use it, but conditional.

The machine is heavy and might be damaging if not well used.

All in all it is perfect for a smooth and seamless finish.

What are the precautions to use this sheet sander?

Follow the instructions manual provided by the company then you will be save.

Among them, you have to put on protective clothes, hand gloves and protective eye classes.

I have used sheet sander for about a year and it worked very well.

It is easy to control, more especially with the adjustable speed which helps match with every task.

Also the ability to attach the vacuum hose is something to be proud of because sanding can be messy.

I surely recommend this sheet sander for bigger projects when you want a perfect finish because it comes with a 120 grit sand paper.
