I used to buy my belt-sander belts at KLINGSPOR but the last time I checked their prices , I was shocked.
Where do you buy your belts?
Thank you.

I just bought Mirka sanding belts on Amazon.
I bought the sanding disks of the same brand in the past and I was happy with them.

Ira should be ‘super nice finally retired guy’ for those who know him, but I think it’s related to restoring old cars.
I have also been using Klingspor, but have checked out supergrit. Have to look again. My 6×48 gets a lot of work.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

ShopSmith’s new line of belts and 8 hole 5” disks at Lowe’s and their Gator disks and 3×26 belts. Craftsman belts are of poor quality and often break within the first 1/2 hour of use. I want to try Klingspore especiak

I order my belts direct from the manufacturer, Keystone abrasives. All sizes from 3×21 up to 37×75. I use their wood pro abrasive primarily but have a coarse belt of their ceramic abrasive that still cuts like it was new a year later

I just bought two 6×48 belts at Sears for $8.50 each. That’s more than twice supergrits, but I don’t know how much they charge for shipping.

+1 to Bondo’s recommendation. Service, Quality, Price.

Something to keep in mind when it comes to buying sanding belts, they have a shelf life and will deteriorate over a given time so be sure to buy only what you can use in a short given period.
