    You will get better result with Aluminium Oxide wet &dry paper as it gives a duller finish than silicon carbide & it lasts longer.I stock this in grit range 60-1200 in rolls 115mm wide sold by the metre.Very popular with Knifemakers. …

    Thanks,He did ask & I was able to supply 10 off mixed grit belts.Major problem this machine is not popular with Knife makers-The 1" x 30" Clarke or Rexon is a more suitable budget buy.

    Extra pressure?Do not slow the belt down,the faster it travels the more cutting points per minute are in contact.Also it is possible to use too coarse a grit particularly on less powerful machines.You might find 40 grit more…

    You might try the SAIT 9SH which is premium Ceramic grain on a heavier backing & has a heat reducing top size coat for a cooler cut & longer life.10% more expensive than the than the 7SH which is very popular.

    Would give a reasonable finish.The higher the level of finish you want then go…
