Hi, my name is Matthew Christian from Tampa, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village today I'd like to talk to you about a portable electric sander. When you are done using your portable electric sander you want to make sure you practice good storage habits. You want that sander to last for the next time you need it. Practicing good storage habits will help ensure that. There's not too much here to really know about except some sanders don't come with a case, others do. This particular model comes with a storage case. When you're done with your sander you may, following maintenance, clean the dust bag, blow it off, get it cleaned up and put it back in the case. Wind your cord up, put it in the case as well. Close it up and then store it in a cool dry place. If you don't have a case that is fine as well but again, this is an electric device so you want to store it in at least a dry and if possible cool place.
