Great value. 1/4 of the price that the hire company wanted to charge, and worked perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Beamman Value for money
I have 4 employees who all spend around 4 hours per day sanding oak shelves and beams using these belts, we have been using them for over two years now and have no issues with them whatsoever, take a tip from a professional and not some DIY'er who probably operates a computer all day, these belt represent good value for money and if looked after and cleaned will last ages.
The comments about "juddering" made in other reviews are more than likely down to the quality of the machine they are on and not the belts, all belt sander belts have an overlapped joint where they join to make the belt continuous which will inevitably give a small amount of vibration, especially if you are applying too much pressure to the sander....
I'm just off to order another 10 packs of each grade.....

Nothing wrong with these belts atall!
I used these on my big Makita without any trouble whatsoever. People need to remember to fit the belts in the correct direction of rotation, simple enough I know, but easy to accidentally fit them backwards.
The other thing to remember is that for a belt-sander; 120 grit is actually very fine and the joint in the belt is larger than the size of the grit so you WILL feel it pass over the work with a regular soft "thump". That's perfectly normal and if you are comfortable with your machine it won't be an issue for you.

These belts make the sander 'judder'. They don't run smoothly, i think because the joint in the belt is not flat enough. I bought 3 packs of these and I'm going to take them back for a refund. DON'T BUT THEM!!
