I've recently purchased a Rikon 1/42 belt sander and am wondering if any of you know of a good source for 500 and up belts? For anyone interested in getting a belt sander this is a great machine. I was going to get a Grizzle or Coote but instead I went with this because of it's affordability. It's a steel base, cast iron and belt driven. All of it's components are not integrated, making repairs and modifications easy. I know 2/72 is the standard for knife making but for my needs this was a great purchase.
