The item is merely pressed against the revolving disc and a perfectly flat end can be quickly created in this manner.

There is also a brake in the form of a lever that you press to bring the disc to a quick stop. The cast iron sanding table is provided with a slot for the adjustable mitre fence, used for end grain sanding. The table tilts from -15⁰ to +45° and is firmly locked in position with heavy duty handles at both ends. The righ half of the disc is covered to prevent accidents.
