Usage Questions
Do I need to use two hands?
Not all the time, but depending on the job you may need to in order to maintain control of the tool.
Am I supposed to press down on the tool to use it and if so how hard?
No. Let the tool weight do the work for you. Just maintain a firm grip on the handle(s) during use.
Is it better just to move the tool forward or forward and backwards during use?
It is best to move the restorer back and forth evenly and consistently that will give you the best uniform results.
Do I need to connect it to a vacuum?
No you do not, but it helps the accessories last longer by vacuuming the debris from the roller as it rotates in the chamber and keeps the work surface cool by continually drawing fresh air over the surface.
Can I use it vertically to sand a fence?
Absolutely. The restorer handle is designed specifically for that purpose.
Can I use the Restorer on wet surfaces?
It is best to use the Restorer on dry surfaces only. If not you run the risk of electrical shock, clogging the dust port and getting water in the bearings.
How often should the dust port be cleaned out?
The dust port should be checked before and after every time it is used to assure the vacuum collection is working properly.
What should I clean the dust port out with?
A soft bristled tooth brush works great for removing light debris that may be caught in the chamber. It is also best to remove the roller so that you can access both side of the dust port.
What is the best way to store the restorer?
It is best to place the restorer on the nose or the front handle of the tool. It will keep the roller from making contact with any surface.
Do I need to oil and gears?
No the restorer gears are greased at the factory and sealed in the gear housing.
