I just bought a woodmaster w-800 stroke sander. Problem is that it didn’t come with a manual and I was unable to get any info from Woodmaster since they dont produce these anymore. I have done an online search and came up with multiple answers. It did come with several belts and I laid them out flat and measured them then multiplied by 2. I came up with 77.5×2 = 155” belt. I have seen anywhere from 143 to 165 online. Do any LJ’s out there have this machine? If so I’d sure appreciate any info you could pass along.

As always, I really appreciate the great info I get from this site

Thanks

This article I found doesn’t answer your questions but it has some
useful info at the end on using stroke sanders and making belts.

http://books.google.com/books?id=dvsDAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA39&dq=woodmaster+stroke+sander&hl=en&sa=X&ei=oqqnUpvSI8r0oASn54LICg&ved=0CEYQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=woodmaster%20stroke%20sander&f=false

I’m skeptical of the ability of packing tape to hold belts together,
but the author seems confident.

I have a stroke sander too. I haven’t used it much yet but I’m very
impressed with what I’ve seen.

You can get belts from manufacturers no problem. I do not have a stroke sander but I order custom belts for my edge sander all the time. All my belts are custom cut for me from large rolls, they can do any size you would need. I use Keystone abrasives, Wood pro is their abrasive I use the most
