I can not take a picture of the wood bouncing as I’m holding it at the time. Maybe if I had said it is like it is kicking back that might have helped.
It doesn’t just do it once but if I continue to hold the wood to the Abranet Mesh it continues to keep kicking back at me. It doesn’t kick back hard enough that I can’t hold it but it makes sanding quite difficult.
Where the Manual said there should not be more than 1/16 inch between the sanding table and the rotating Abtranet Mesh I have about 5/32 space. This space being from the end of the table with the miter slot in it to where the Abranet Mesh belt is rotating.
Hope that helps.
I’m also wondering if the kick back could be from the tape on the back of the Abranet Mesh but that seems to be the only thing that is holding the belt together.
U like most sanding belts there are no arrows on the inside of the belt to show which direction the belt should be put on for correct rotation.
