Belt Sander

We have a belt sander in the workshop. This is used for smoothing material and removing excess material. It uses a standard belt that comes in different grades and these belts wear out with use. This is usable by anyone who has had a workshop safety induction.

Safety

  • Wear eye protection - hot debris in the eye is not pleasant
  • If using this equipment for a significant amount of time, a dust mask is adviseable.
  • Do NOT wear gloves - they could get entangled and pull your hand into the machine
