Lumberjocks, I need a good source for good but affordable 6” X 48” 250, 280, and 320 grit sanding belts. Do you know of such a source where they stock it and allow you to buy 1 or 2 pieces of each or a combination of a half dozen mixed grits? If they also stock the lower grits but allow you to mix the grits I could buy 1 dozen at a time. Thanks

Don’t know that I’ve ever seen 250, 220 is pretty common and I’ve seen 240 though. This place has 240 and 320 but you have to buy them in 10 packs, maybe you could get them to mix.

Norton makes them too in 220, 240, & 320 if you can find someone that carries Norton which is pretty common and if they don’t have them they can probably order them. Woodcraft carries Norton 220 grit so they could probably get 240 & 320 for you. The 10 pack price is kind of attractive in that it seems to be half the single piece price. But 10 would last a long time, at least for me probably.

There is a Canadian outfit called “The Stockroom” that I think has what you need. Good to deal with.
