There are several hazards you need to be aware of when using a spindle sander.
- Never make contact with the rotating spindle. The sand paper is very course and will cause injury if contact is made.
- The spindle is rotating very fast and can grab your work piece.
- Hold onto material firmly and keep it against the table to help prevent the material from pulling out of your hands. If material catches on the spindle it can starts rotating quickly and create a dangerous situation.
As sanding sleeves are used they will "gum up" with saw dust. If not removed, the saw dust will harden and reduce the life of the sanding sleeve. As needed, a abrasive cleaner should be used on the sleeves.
