Belt Cleaner 76mm
The right stuff
I bought one of these blocks some time ago. Having 3 belt sanding machines: a power file, a 2 inch belt single handed machine, and a 3 inch. It is also suited to disc cleaning. This simple block is a godsend and has saved me Â£Â£Â£'s. While it takes only a couple of minutes to change a belt, it takes seconds to clean it with this block. While it is possible to clog up a sanding belt with some material which you cannot expect to move, when used on wood clogged belts it removes nearly all the dross material.If you have a belt or disc sander do yourself a big favour .....Get one of these blocks.
I gave 'Features' one star, how can you rate a solid block of material for features !!

Works as described
You get items of gear that sort of work but don't quite deliver but this sanding belt cleaner is fist class.
I use a draper bench sander for finishing and making musical instruments and the disc clogs quickly. The belt cleaner had it looking like a new disc in seconds. It was slightly less succesful with the belt as I have a 320 fine grit belt running and the disc was a medium grit. It still got the belt looking like it was 90% clean.
I wish I had bought on of these years ago it would have saved me fortune.

Works a treat
Bought this with a new belt sander and it sure works a treat! Saves time and money in changing belts which always seem to clog quickly for me. Only tried it a couple of times on a job I was doing but it cleared the belt fast and kept the sander working more efficiently. Now stored in the bag alongside the sander and spare belts and will defo be replaced when it wears down (but that's a long way away!).
