Fortunately for our industry (not to mention our sanity) most commercial belt and drum sanders have become standardized so that they all take belts of standard sizes. But there are still a great many older sanders out there that require the odd sized belt. In addition, belt sanding is not exclusive to woodworking, and there are many sanders being used around the country that may use odd sized sanding belts which would be wildly expensive and difficult to replace. And some sanders, old and new, actually use sanding belts as part of their conveyor belt feed system.
So, how does one source a custom sized sanding belt when needed? Well, of course, we at 2Sand.com, can help. We can make custom sanding belts for you from 5” to 700” long, 3/8” to 54” wide, and in a variety of sanding grits and types of sanding abrasives. From the 2sand.com home page, click on the “Custom” button all the way over on the right of the header. This will take you to a page that explains everything you need to know to get your free quote to meet your specific needs.
Need an extra long 3/4” wide belt for that gun stock sander? We got you covered. Got a great old stroke sander in the shop that needs a specific size? No need to replace a perfectly working sander just because it is non-standard. You can buy a LOT of custom sized sanding belts for the cost of buying, shipping and installing a new sander; and let's face it, most new sanders can’t compete with a well maintained piece of “old iron”.
Nor are you limited to just custom belts. Oversized sanding rolls, and even sanding sheets, can be made to your order. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is just a call away at 800-516-7621. Be sure to read through our custom page. It explains what your options are and how to determine the size sanding material you need to order.
