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.
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.
