What Applications Do These Belts Work Well For?
Our industrial quality sanding belts are perfect for non ferrous metals (aluminum, copper, titanium, nickel) and ferrous metals (steel, stainless steel, pig iron, alloys, hardened steel, etc.). The sandpaper belts are also great for dense and hard woods. Use the sandpaper belts for stock removal, grinding of welds, shaping, cutting, sharpening, honing and blending metals.
Our Edgecore Ceramic Coarse/Medium Grit and Zirconia Coarse Grit Kits are designed to contain every belt you need for every step in the knife making process from profiling to bevel grinding, edge sanding, and sharpening.
Why Would You Use A Flex Backing?
As the name suggests, flex backings are light and flexible. They are used when slack grinding (no platen or contact wheel) to give curved surfaces a uniform finish. Slack grinding is especially useful for convex curves (curves that extend outward like a football).
Do These Belts Work With All 2 x 72 Belt Grinders?
Yes, all of our 2 x 72 inch belts included in our assortment kits are designed to fit any 2 x 72 inch grinder. Common 2 x 72 inch grinders include the Brodbeck Ironworks grinders, Wilton Square Wheel Grinder, Black Fox One, Black Fox Pro, AmeriBrade 2x72 Grinder, KMG Industrial Belt Grinder, Hardcore Belt Grinder, Bader Bill, Reeder Grinders, and Bob Dozier Grinder. Our belts will fit all of these grinders and more.
