Well, it sure sounds like that belt, that machine and what it is you want to sand are just not going to get along. I know that isn’t what you want to hear, but maybe at this point try a regular belt and see if the bouncing stops. If so then I think you might need to call the manufacturer of the belt and speak to them. Maybe there are sanders that are better suited to this type belt?? I have never heard of any, but the belt maker would/should know. This may be a dumb question at this point, but is this belt intended to be used on a regular belt sander or some special different design type? Wish I had better info. I know the mesh is grabby, but I didn’t think it would prevent you from using it.
