      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    Explanation
    The stock should be applied to the sander in a gentle and smooth manner. This means that the pressure applied to the sander should not be too forceful or aggressive, but rather controlled and steady. Applying the stock gently and smoothly helps to ensure an even and consistent sanding result, without causing damage to the material or the sander itself. It also allows for better control and precision during the sanding process.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the correct way to use a disk sander is to always use it on the downward side. Using it on the upward side can cause the workpiece to be lifted and thrown off the sander, leading to potential accidents and injuries. It is important to follow proper safety guidelines and instructions when using power tools to ensure personal safety and prevent damage to the workpiece.

    You must always wear eye protection when using the sanders.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to wear eye protection when using sanders because they generate a lot of dust and debris that can cause eye injuries. The high-speed rotation of the sanding disc or belt can also cause small particles to fly off and potentially enter the eyes. Wearing eye protection, such as safety glasses or goggles, helps to prevent these hazards and ensures the safety of the user.

    B. False
    Explanation
    It is important to pull long hair back and roll up long sleeves when using sanders in order to prevent any accidents or injuries. Long hair can get caught in the machine, leading to serious harm, and loose sleeves can also get entangled in the sander. Therefore, it is crucial to take these safety precautions before operating sanders.

    A. True
    Explanation
    Before turning on the sanders, it is important to ensure that your work is not touching the disc or drum.

    Correct Answer
    C. Side
    Explanation
    When using a sander, it is important to never stand at the side of it. This is because the sander's rotating motion can cause debris or particles to be thrown to the sides, which can pose a safety risk to anyone standing there. Therefore, it is recommended to stand away from the sides and instead position oneself either in front or at the back of the sander to ensure personal safety.

    The statement is stating that when using the sanders, the material should be clean and dry. This means that in order to effectively use the sanders, the material being worked on should not have any dirt, debris, or moisture on it. This is important because if the material is dirty or wet, it can affect the performance of the sanders and may not produce the desired results. Therefore, the statement is true.
