This was a helpful video in that I learned I was feeding my sandpaper on the palm sander incorrectly. Thank you for that. However, my second question was, in what direction is the sander moving so I know in what direction to move the sander with the wood grain. This video series stops at that point. : ( It loads but after I hit play, nothing happens. This is a disappointment.
