This tool will be a great addition for woodworking as well as other projects as it can also be used to grind metals. There are even advantages over stone-based grinders such as the larger surface and no chance of exploding stones. Belts may rip and go flying though, especially if they are installed in the wrong direction.
This sander requires 76 × 457 mm belts. We only have a few belts, so be prepared bring your own!
If the belt often slips under pressure, it may have become stiff - this may be fixed by "massaging" it a bit in tight bends or replacing it with a new one.
