    Where do you get Grinding Belts? All I see are sanding belts.

    Here's a link to the belts I get. They are for metal. You can get better belts but these are much lower priced.

    Thanks for the belt link, interesting that they are Sanding belts not specifically made for grinding.
    I have used sanding belts for light touchup but not grinding.

    Dang... you are right! I use them for metal all the time. They do great for a short time but drop to about 80% and stay there for quite a while. You might try this one, it states that it is for metal and the price is about the same.

    Thanks again, the ZIRCONIA ALUMINA is probable more aggressive than the Aluminum Oxide.
