Here is the way I have done it: Get a piece of steel and stuff the edge into the belt until you are completely covered with cork dust. Do this until no more dust comes off. This takes awhile. Use belt.

The cork belts are really uneven. You are trying to level out the high spots is all. SRJohnson says to do it for 10 minutes -- high speed, pushing a scap piece of metal into the belt with some force. I have never gone more than 3 or 4 minutes myself. I have A.D.D. I think...
