Important: These belts are labeled 2" x 72" and are designed for 2" x 72" belt sanders. However, the dimensions of our scalloped belts are 1" x 72". The 1" reduction in width allows you to sand smaller recessed areas when slack grinding and to make better use of the flaps.

How Do Scalloped Edge Belts Work?
A standard sanding belt with a straight edge may cut into curved edges in unintended ways if you’re sanding around them. Scalloped belts have curved edges, which allow them to more naturally sand around curved edges. It’s important to note that these belts are designed to use the slack of the belt. They shouldn’t be used if you are grinding against a platen or contact wheel.
The amount of slack you add to your belt will also affect how it performs. Tighter slack will create narrow lines while loose slack will allow for more flexible contouring. Scalloped edge belts are very popular for removing burrs from knife edges and sanding curves to finish knife handles.
Do These Scalloped Belts Work With All 2 X 72 Grinders?
Yes, our 2”x72” aluminum oxide scalloped sanding belts are designed to work with all 2”x72” grinders. Popular grinders that our belts have been used on include the Wilton Square Wheel Grinder, Black Fox Pro, Bob Dozier Grinder, Brodbeck Ironworks grinders, KMG Industrial Belt Grinder, Reeder Grinders, and Hardcore Belt Grinder.
