Edge sander owners, what grits?
« on: February 23, 2019, 10:11:16 PM »
For those who own edge sanders what grits do you use the most?
I just bought a 6x80” and need to order some belts

I use 60 grit.

Those edge sanders hog wood off in no time.

Check out this place for belts.

Great service and have bulk prices.

I also buy from Supergrit. For fiberglass and wood bows I mostly use 50,80 and 120 zirconium 6"x 80" belts. I use a 36 grit belt every now and then.. but the 50 and 120 see the most work profiling limb edges

Stay sharp, Kenny.

Ok thanks men, I was thinking 36 for rough limb profiling instead of using a saw, and 50-60 for more fine work.

"grits and grunts" here in Florida. Grunt is a saltwater fish we catch in the Gulf of Mexico, I like my grits with cheese and butter. I have used 36 grit belts to grind limb edges but usually use a 50 to get 1/16" from line then use a 120 to grind to the line. 120 will leave a cleaner edge over the 50, I still use 180 or 220 grit on my mouse sander to further smooth the limb edges. During limb grinding I keep a sanding block with 80 or 100 grit to keep masking tape on back trimmed even with the sanded limb, the tape can roll up a little and be wider than the glass..
