Aluminum Oxide and Silicon Carbide Abrasive 1/2" x 42" and 1" x 42" Strip Sanding Belts
Open-coat Aluminum Oxide and Silicon Carbide Strip Sanding Belts offer extended durability at a reasonable cost.
These top-quality Strip Sander Belts are made with a durable, open coat Aluminum Oxide abrasive that is fast-cutting and resistant to loading for a longer life. The Silicon Carbide Strip Sander Belts are used for the perfect final touch to your fine tool sharpening.
The Aluminum Oxide and Silicon Carbide abrasive particles are bonded to a flexible, industrial-grade, cotton-poly cloth backing, then precision cut to either 1/2" wide or 1" wide strips. The ends are joined with a tape joint so they can be installed to run in either direction for a perfect fit on the Shopsmith Strip Sander. Their flexible back conform to both the flat platens and the curved platen. The open-coat application of the grit leaves room between the particles to reduce clogging and make the belts cut faster and cooler. Aluminum Oxide is the perfect abrasive choice if you want to change from hardwood to softwood to sharpening and back again.
Note: We advise you to always wear an N95 (NIOSH-Certified) Respirator when sanding to filter out 95% of airborne particles.
