I just got an Innersole-Rand 311A DA Sander and there are safety instructions but no instructions on how to use it. Obviously you hook it up to air and slap some paper on it but there is nothing on how to set it. It seems that I can lock the pad from rotating and maybe also center the pad as well. I would imagine that these different adjustments have different advantages in certain situations but how should I set it for the and for which use?

If you leave it like its offset then you can use the DA (dual action) this means it spins and orbits at the same time. if you center it so it only spins then it is a high speed sander. leave it on the DA setting for normal use. you do know how to oil them with air tool oil or Marvel Mystery Oil before use right?

Yup!

I even use in-line an oiler on my tools.

I just thought they would include how to switch between the two options and maybe have some recommendations in the instruction.

Thanks!

Well I hope that was my stupid thing for this week! There is a clear sticker on the sander that says how and when to lock things up. I only noticed it after about a half hour of using the tool.

Last week it was looking at the Newton/meter increments instead of the inch/pound ones on the torque wrench.

That's funny, the tool manufactures finaly figured out that guys don't read instruction booklets and started wrighting on the tools and we still can't follow them. I think I would still be messing with it.
