(Still under construction)
1. Get trained on this tool before use. It is a highly precise tool. Respect the tool. All users must be trained and checked out (hands-on usage) on the tool before using. Only reading the Wiki article does not constitute training. These resources are provided as references after you have been trained to use the tool. Please add useful information to this page.
2. Do not make adjustments to the alignment or tables. Contact a shop captain for help first if something looks out of alignment. Users should only need to adjust the feed speed and height.
3. Allow the blade to stop before raising the blade after a cut.

Manufacture and Relevant Video:
Decent Drum Sander overview for a different model than what we have. Reference the Powermatic abrasive loading and feeding instructions.
TM Usage Video: To be made
How to make Abrasives from large rolls:
A template is available in the storage room. The top (3 parts) and bottom (3 parts) set of templates sandwich the belt which is 3 inches wide. Belts that are 2 7/8" will not work. The belt should be placed grit side down. The front and back tapers should be cut with an utility knife. Roles should be made about 2.5" in diameter and wrapped with masking tape with the grit number written on the outside and $7 so members know how much to pay at the front iPad.
