With the machine in horizontal position, start by attaching the lower guard to the quill housing. Tighten it securely using the 5/32″ Allen Wrench.

Open the two halves of the guard to their widest point, then lock the guard in this position.

Step 3

Finally, position the table carriage so the edge of your work table is no farther than 1/8″ away from the sanding disc if you will NOT be using the quill to feed the disc into your workpiece.

If you WILL be using the quill to feed the disc into the workpiece, this distance should be 1/2″.
