Introduction: Disc Sander

The disc sander quickly removes material from edges or corners of material.

There are two disc sanders; a Laguna 20” disc, and a Powermatic disc/belt combination machine. They work the same way.

The table on both disc sanders can be tilted, in order to sand at an angle.

Keep the workpiece in contact with the table at all times.

  • Only sand on the portion of the disc that is moving down.
    • Never move the guards.
  • To avoid wearing the paper in one spot, move your workpiece around the table.
  • Be aware that it will remove material at different speeds depending on where you are on the table.
