I know the luthier that I studied with had two 6 inch belt sander.. One was a Jet and the other was a Grizzly like I have. He was running Abranet Max belts on both machines. So I’m quite sure, having used both 6 inch sanders in both vertical and horizontal positions that the Abranet Max Mesh belts should run fine.
I tried another 120 grit belt and I have the same problem.

I tried to call Mirka who makes or imports the Mirka Abranet Max Mesh belts and they were closed. They are on the east coast and I am on the west coast. I will try contacting them again.

I will be with the luthier that I took my acoustic guitar building class from hopefully net week and I will ask him about the problem also.

I am thinking of taking off the belt or another abrnet mesh belt and suing my steam iron on the tape to see if I can decrease the thickness. I use the iron for putting on veneer so I am wondering if I could soften the glue and see if I would spread the glue a bit further. Just an idea as I am stumped.
