  Drum-Sander User Guide UG-110-10
   Understanding of safety requirements for operation of equipment
   Walk through set-up and operation guidelines
   Review CAUTION: There are 2 lock bolts on the bed adjustment bolts to keep the current setting. Please DO NOT change these settings. There are guides lines on the front showing where the belt should run so it's obvious if it starts to track to the right and curl under which will grind the right roller and bed. If this happens please STOP since the belt is just a large sheet of sandpaper and it will grind out the entire roller support and permanently damage the machine.
