Wear safety glasses or a face shield. May even wear a dust mask depending on material your working on. Gloves may help also. can't think of anything else, work slow, be proud of your work, even if you mess up a little, remember you did it your self.

# Ensure that sanding belts are not too tight or too loose. Never operate a sanding disk if the paper is loose. # Use the correct grade of abrasive material for the job. # Ensure that the distance between a circular sander and the edge of the table is not greater than 1/4 inch. # Do not push materials against sanders with excessive force. # Sand only on the downstroke side of a disk sander. # Do not hold small pieces by hand. Use a jig for pieces that are difficult to hold securely

Gear timming in line sander

The Matco is very similar to the IR-315 straight line sander as well as the Central Pneumatic Straight Line Sander sold by Harbor Freight-shown here: The Central Pneumatic became the focus of my attention when I realized it was not timed properly after re-assembly!
gear-timming-in-line-sander-ouwmaoiy3rgyhljowtwgziyj-2-0.jpg Assuming you are having the same problem,(1) I recommend mounting the body upside down in a small vise as shown here:

gear-timming-in-line-sander-ouwmaoiy3rgyhljowtwgziyj-2-2.jpg(2)Rotate both piston gears full forward (to the left in this photo). (3)Then carefully rotate each toward the back end precisely three teeth (to the right in this photo). It is important to note: Begin counting to the precise 3rd tooth once the first tooth is near top center in step (2). Thus, if after rotating the gears forward until they stop, you ideally want a tooth visible right at the top center. If the tooth is not at top center, move the gear(s) slightly toward the back until the very first tooth is now centered up: then begin counting to the 3rd tooth. If after rotating the gears forward until they stop, a tooth is NEARLY at top center: use it as your starting point and count to the third tooth (step 3). I recommend wiping the oil/ grease off of these two centered teeth and coating them with red majic marker.
(4) Reference next picture: Hover cursor near rotary air valve gear. The dotted gear lobe should be a 1 oclock, assuming 12 oclock is in line with the center of the body toward the knob end of unit. Note the piston gears are marked for the centered 3rd tooth. Note the two teeth on each side of the center valley(s) of the rail gears are highlighted as well.
gear-timming-in-line-sander-ouwmaoiy3rgyhljowtwgziyj-2-5.jpg (5) I recommend marking the valley after the tooth that follows the dotted tooth and verifying its position is at 3 oclock. Notice in the background that the center tooth is highligted (it is the fifth tooth from either end of that straight gear on the rack).Also reference the second photo after step (6):

(6) visually confirm all teeth are in perfect alignment for placing the rack upon the unit:

gear-timming-in-line-sander-ouwmaoiy3rgyhljowtwgziyj-2-14.jpg (7) Simply place the rack onto the unit's body making sure all your marks are centered up. If correctly lined up, you will incur no resistance or offsetting. If rack does not simply "lie onto the gears", lift back off and re-check the alignment of each of the teeth and valleys. A slight movement of one of the piston gears is usually the cure.
(8) re-attach the rack retainer bars with at least 2 screws on each side before moving the unit.

(9) you should visually be able to see about 1-1/2" of rack movement from the unit by pushing the rack to its limits. A centered rack measures approx. 15/16" on both ends of unit to the center of the bolt in the rack.

Hello I have a compressor and my electric orbital sander has finally gone legs up. My question is if I get an air sander primarily for sanding wood is a straight line the best sort to get or are the...

I work in a wood working shop and we use orbitals on everything. You still will still sand with nice even strokes with the grain. It leaves a great finish. They are nice, light, and easy to use! They do use a lot of air though, so make sure your air compressor can handle the one you buy. If you compressor is constantly running you might have to take breaks so you do not burn it up. enjoy!

Dynabrade sander doesn't spin

check the exhaust muffler. or just take it off and see what happens.

there is usually an inlet air adjustment on the palm sander itself one of these will correct your sander.
if not, and your air supply is good. put some air oil in it or even a light weight oil will work.
if none of this is the correct action to get it going. its probably toast!

You need to look at the tool cfm requirements because they are posted on the package or usually in the ads. Your compressor will run the sander, just how long at a time will depend upon your tool's cfm. Rick
