    I can supply belts in any size & material ,just send me a message. .I believe the 1" x 30" to be the best budget option though.

    judging by the number of orders I get the 1"x30" machine is easily the most popular budget machine & there is very good availability on belts from 40g Ceramic up tp 2,000 grit A6 Trizact.

    Please respond if you would use this grade A90?Also if…
  • All gone to first two responders Alan & Steve.Thanks to all for the interest.
  • Supplied in error a while back My normal stock is 50 x 1830mm.I need the room so these 50 x 2000mm 80g Zirconia are ONLY £30 per ten!Unrepeatable bargain!8)
