+1 on not using fine grits. As far as clogging belts, get one of the “giant rubber eraser” things to clean the belt. A few light passes back and forth on the spinning drum will clean the paper quite well. Just be certain to follow up with a stiff brush on the drum (stop the machine first) and the feed belt to remove the rubber nubs. They will cause burn marks if you leave them in place.

Avoid the temptation to use your hand held shop broom on the spinning drum. The heat generated can melt the bristles. Don’t ask me how I know that.
