  • Date:2021/08/09

Slotting edge sanding machine has a unique way of slotting edges for different types of wood. Generally, when you use this machine, it's very important for you to know the right techniques to help you get the perfect result. For you to do this, it is necessary for you to search for the moving pieces including the blade, belts, wheels, and many more. But there are also some other important things that you have to know like the type of wood that you want to slot, the slotting speed, the heat level, as well as many others. All of these can help you get the most excellent result for your projects.


Before starting to slot your wood, you have to prepare all the materials needed such as wood, sandpaper, blades, the motor, and many others. The next thing that you have to do is to make sure that the area that you want to sand is at least three inches wide, which is the most basic requirement of slotting edge sanding machine. Then, you have to make the first pass with your sandpaper and after that, you have to set the blade at 45 degrees to the wood's natural surface.


For the blade of this machine, you have to make sure that it is made of high-quality materials in order to provide smooth operation. After that, you have to check the slotting direction and then turn it counterclockwise. The reason for this is to get rid of any burrs and burr lines that may appear in the edges of the wood. Meanwhile, you have to increase the speed of the slotting edge sanding machine to have more control during the sanding process.


As the blade goes up and down, you have to make sure that the same amount of pressure is applied on both sides of the wood. If there are any inconsistencies on the sides of the wood, it will cause the inconsistencies in the edges as well. With this, you need to run the sanding over the entire length of the wood to even it out and to flatten the wood surface before it goes back to the starting position.


After that, the slotting edge sanding machine should always be running to ensure that you do not have to do any manual work during the process. However, there are some homeowners who still prefer to do manual work especially if they are too busy to run the machine. When doing manual work, you have to be very careful not to damage the wood material that is being worked on. For this matter, you have to make sure that you sand the slotting edges carefully and you also have to be extra cautious when using the sanding machine on sensitive materials such as wood.
