    C. Ear muffs
    D. Fully enclosed leather footwear
    E. Hair net (if long hair)
    Explanation
    To use the disc sander safely, it is important to wear the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This includes a dust mask to protect against inhaling dust particles, safety glasses/goggles/mask to shield the eyes from flying debris, ear muffs to protect against loud noise, fully enclosed leather footwear to protect the feet from any potential hazards, and a hair net if the person has long hair to prevent it from getting caught in the machine. Additionally, wearing an apron or dust coat can provide further protection against dust and debris.

  • 2. 

    Should work be applied to the sander before it reaches full speed?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    It is not necessary to apply work to the sander before it reaches full speed. Sander machines are designed to operate efficiently and effectively once they have reached their full speed. Applying work before the sander reaches full speed may cause inefficient sanding or damage to the material being worked on. It is best to wait for the sander to reach its full speed before using it.

  • 3. 

    How should timber be applied to the sander?

    • A.

      Hard and fast

    • B.

      Gently and smoothly

    • C.

      Slowly and continuously

    Correct Answer
    B. Gently and smoothly
    Explanation
    Timber should be applied to the sander gently and smoothly to ensure a proper and even sanding process. Applying too much pressure or moving the timber too quickly can result in uneven sanding, damage to the timber, or even injury to the person operating the sander. It is important to maintain a steady and controlled movement while applying the timber to the sander to achieve the desired smooth finish.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which portion of the disc should be used for sanding?

    • A.

      Portion that rotates upwards from the table

    • B.

      Portion that rotates downwards toward the table

    Correct Answer
    B. Portion that rotates downwards toward the table
    Explanation
    The portion of the disc that rotates downwards toward the table should be used for sanding. This is because when the disc rotates in this direction, it creates a downward force that helps to hold the workpiece securely against the table. Sanding in the opposite direction could cause the workpiece to be lifted off the table, resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Why shouldn't small pieces of timber be sanded?

    • A.

      The timber might get jammed in the sander

    • B.

      You might sand your fingers as well

    • C.

      You might burn your fingers

    • D.

      The timber might get flung away by the sander

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The timber might get jammed in the sander
    B. You might sand your fingers as well
    C. You might burn your fingers
    D. The timber might get flung away by the sander
    Explanation
    Small pieces of timber should not be sanded because they might get jammed in the sander, which can cause damage to the machine and potentially lead to injuries. Additionally, sanding small pieces of timber can put your fingers at risk of being sanded or burned. The force of the sander can also cause the timber to be flung away, posing a safety hazard.

    When you have finished sanding or if you are distracted, what must be done immediately?

    • A.

    • B.

      Talk to your friend

    • C.

      Remove your protective equipment

    • D.

      Turn off the sander

    Correct Answer
    D. Turn off the sander
    Explanation
    When you have finished sanding or if you are distracted, it is important to immediately turn off the sander. This is necessary for safety reasons as leaving the sander on can lead to accidents or injury. It is crucial to always prioritize safety and ensure that the equipment is properly turned off when not in use or when you are not actively engaged in the task.
