Once you’ve done this, you can go ahead and buy the machine you want. You have two options: you can buy it immediately or you can search for used or pre-owned Sanders machines on the market. Once you have bought the machine, you are ready to assemble it. Although the instructions are clear, I recommend reading the manual before you start – just in case you don’t understand something.
