1. Fasten a wooden dowel into the sanding disc plate. It's a tight fit but you can add some glue. Make sure the dowel doesn't protrude from the back side. Stick the sanding paper to the back with double-sided tape.

2. Fasten a wooden dowel into the large gear wheel. It's a tight fit but you can add some glue. This will be the turning handle.

3. Fasten a wooden dowel into the main vertical frame plate. It's a tight fit but you can add some glue.


4. Slide the assembled sanding disc plate through the vertical frame plate. Put the 120mm MDF washer between the sanding disc plate and the frame plate.

5. Fasten the small gear wheel onto the wooden dowel you just slided through the vertical frame plate. Put the 20mm MDF washer between the frame plate and the gear wheel. The gear wheel is a tight fit but you can add some glue. Make sure the sanding disc plate rotates easy but tight in line with the frame plate.

6. Slide the large gear wheel over the wooden dowel in the frame plate. Put the 60mm MDF washer between the frame plate and the gear wheel.

7. Fasten the big washer onto the wooden dowel in the frame plate. Put the 50mm MDF washer between the gear wheel and the big washer. It's a tight fit but you can add some glue. Make sure the large gear wheel rotates easy but tight in line with the frame plate and the small gear wheel.


8. Slide the vertical frame plate with the sanding disc and the gear wheels in the two vertical support pieces. Add some glue.

9. Slide the assembled frame plate with support pieces into the slots of the base plate. Add some glue.


Your MEKXON TG 225 is ready for use. You can use the feeding plate (10) for sanding at 90° or 45° angles.
