How to Use

Used for reducing corners, edges and creating softer, more organic shapes. Be aware, can remove significant amounts of raw material quickly.

IMPORTANT: Best for adjusting a shape, to create smoother curves, NOT for creating a shape from a rectilinear form. For example: use a band saw to remove corners from a square block, before shaping it into a circle or curve on a sander.

NOTE: No Metal is to be machined on this equipment! Please use the Student Machine Shop next door for ALL metal machining needs.


Please check out the safety video for the Belt Sander.
