Does anyone want to try one of these huge belts. They are 43" x 102" and are used but are in good shape. The grits are 180, 120, 220. We use these on commercial sanders and replace them as soon as they get a little dull.
They can be cut up and used as sheets.

Let me know.

Steve, what do you sand with those monters? I would love to have one to cut up and use. Thats ALOT of sand paper by my calculations! Dozier

They are from a UNISAND 4 head auto feed sander. We sand cabinet doors with them. See pix below.

And yes, it's 30.45 square feet.

They are free. I have 4 to give away. Let me know what you'll do with them. I would like to cut or fold them to save on shipping.

Ok, I'll take a finer grit one, and pay for freight, but you gotta tell me what they were used for initially?
I'm gonna get mine and splice it up to make belts for my craftsman 2X48. Sound like a plan? Dozier

No shipping costs.
I think I'll cut em in half and roll up to fit in a mailing tube.

Steve

The belts can be split along their length to narrower sizes. If you put a longer horizontal bar on your 2 X 72 you can actually use them in a knifemaking application.

I am currently building a grinder that will have a long horizontal arm setup to run belts from 72 to 132".

Well, I'd certainly be interested in any more you might end up with. Whole or sliced, I'll find a use for all that sandpaper in my shop - promise!!

Shipping and time, compensated for, obviously.

These are shipped. I cut the belt into strips and rolled them into cardboard tubes. You should have them by now or very soon, they did go snail mail.

WOW , if you get more of these I would gladly pay shipping. I could do the same as Robert and use them on my 12" disc sander.
