We had two 36 inch wide belt sanders (not big enough) at the plant but if you brought that to our plant we would never run that piece of wood through either one of them. Not for any $100 anyways. I’m the one that kept our equipment up and I’ve had to align the conveyors, rollers, and all the other things involved when they get off. We used them to finish sand all the s4s and paneling that came off the 5 molders. They were good industrial sanders and I’ll admit that we babied them but we still ran thousands of feet through them and I would never risk the down time to do that job. If you’re going to be doing stuff like that every so often I would go with the routers.
