I’ve got a Ridgid EB4424 Oscillating belt and spindle sander. It uses 4” x 24” belts.
I’ve got an idea to use this for sharpening my gouges, chisels, and planes. For my gouges, I’m planning to fasten piece of wood, with a V-groove, to the miter guage and use that to hold the gouge at the proper angle while I rotate it on the belt. The same concept can be applied to other tools too.
I found a source for high grit belts at http://www.supergrit.com. They sell Black S.C. 4×24” belts up to 600 grit. I’m thinking that this might be perfect.
The minimum order from Supergrit.com is $25 so I wanted to get your opinions before pulling the trigger..
