    Grinding belts

    The belt has a thicker back witch stops the flopping in the belt

    2x72 belts

    Posted by Old Man Knives on May 5th 2019

    So far I’ve used 5 of the 16 belts I purchased. They all have ran true the heavier backed fine belts seem to have less bounce from joint verses thinner backed fine belts I’ve used in the past. So far very pleased with the purchase.

    I use these on 5160 and 80crv2 for some stock removal after forging. Good tough belt.

    Just recently upgraded to a 2x72. In my opinion, a sanding belt is a sanding belt and the material is what matters. That being said, I appreciate the service from empire abrasives and will continue to use them as my dealer. I am a hobbyist knife maker and most other dealers only offer bulk packaging. With empire I can order 1 or 100. Doesnt matter and they deliver quickly.

    Smooth running

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 24th 2018

    I love the seam, I had tried other belts and the seam was very rough causing poor cut surface.
    These belts run very smooth.
    Thanks, John
