  • 9" Band saw sanding belts

    will they work on a 9" saw?

    I know that Sears sells (or did) bands for a 12" but is a 9" feasible for this use?

    this place makes custom in the size if would want, 3/8 x 59.5" but they have ignored my emails (2) so far

    http://customsandingbelts.com/abrasive.asp

    My concern is with the strength vs tension as the saw seems quite "tight" even in the loosest (install) setting and was wondering if the cloth or paper backing would hold up for both the tension and pressure of use

    any help would be appreciated, a responsive supplier would help too
    thanks

    Cliffo, just checked out the refered site....was astonished at the low prices...i looked for a 59 1/2" belt which was not shown in the 3/8" width or i would order a couple and see how they work.. My bandsaw is a Ryobi and sizes are limited for this model. narrow sizes might turn out to be a bust and be useless.......... Dave

      yeah, I priced them out on their calculator 1.59 cheap ( .25x59.5) and suppose I'll try a couple and some other sizes
      It irks me that they won't answer an email though....maybe a glitch
      keep you posted

        I had the Craftsman 12" bandsaw and used the 80" sanding belts with it. The sanding belts do not take the tension like a blade will but you can get them to work. If you are sanding into a tight corner or a curve the sanding belt will try and twist because there is no support behind the belt, but you can make up a support out of a couple of blocks of wood and clamp to the table. Since I got rid of that bandsaw I now use the Jet 1 x 42 belt sander. Narrow bands can be very useful on some projects so keep us posted if they answer your email.

          Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

          I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

          This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

          I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

          Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

          How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

          I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

          First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
