Topic tags/keywords: question

Yes, searched and a lot of subjective “reviews” of this brand or another.
Anyway, I am clean out of my 3×24 belts. I tried the expensive Porter Cable grey ones, some of the “Red” ones. Most premium belts cut ok, but the splices are not very smooth. No big deal with 60 grit, but not as much fun with 320 .

Any brand/suggestions?

I would go with Klingspor first, but I’ve also had good luck with 2sand:

I didn’t know people still used hand held belt sanders…...much. Very rare I use mine other that an occasional grinding to make something fit. But yes to Klingspor.
