Always make sure to adhere to all precautions trained during the stationary sander introduction.


The machine does not require extensive maintenance. Service malfunctions and defects by trained persons only. Regular maintenance:

Sandpaper can be restored a few times before it is used up by briefly sanding a piece of rubber! Instead of proper cleaning sticks you can apparently get great results with the sole of an old shoe - any donors? ;-)
