The surface of stock exposed by a saw cut across the grain can be smoothed by sanding. Such smoothing can be readily done on surfaces up to 1" x 10" areas using MARK V set in Disc Sander position.

Note: If support table is positioned so that down-turning side of paper is used, maximum width accommodated will be less than 6". If table is raised to use cross-moving section, stock 10" wide and 1" thick can be sanded. Wider stock is sanded by using miter gauge and sliding work across disc.
