Sander Safety



The CEDE model shop is equipped with a Wilton belt and disk sander. This includes a 6 belt and a 12 disk sander. Both sanders are designed to rough sand a piece of material. The belt sander is a continuous piece of heavy sandpaper that runs along a vertical track. The disk sander is simply a round piece of heavy sandpaper that spins in a circular motion. The motions of the belt are critical in proper operation of the equipment. If properly used, the sander machine may be used freehand.
