As per the title, I would like to buy a couple of different grit wide belt sander abrasives.

These aren’t cheap and seem to only be sold in multiples of 10, but i only want a couple.

Does anyone have a source where I could buy individual belts from which are ideally around 600mm wide?

I want to have a group buy for my Sorby. Great seller and good prices at big volumes.

Maybe, just maybe, we can sort out a group buy? I am willing to admin/facilitate it as a group buy. ie repackage and post on for no extra cost.

That’s very generous of you to offer to do the facilitating. I’m sure you’ll find people for the Sorby proedge size belts, but I don’t know how many people would want any of the larger wide belts I’m hoping for?

I plan to use them to make a large abrasive surface for flattening tops of boxes etc as like Custard suggested here... post1287993.html?hilit=Wide%20belt#p1287993

So in case others wanted the wider belts, i’d like to get one of the below belts in both 80 grit and 180 grit...

Smartboxmaker (Andrew Crawford) sells 600mm x 400mm sheets. If his site says he has sold out it’s worth dropping him an e-mail to enquire if he has any tucked away.

Ring up some local joiners and ask whether they A: Have a wide belt sander, and B: Do they have any nearly unused, exploded or torn belts they'd be willing to part with for some beer tokens.

Exactly, I toss loads in the skip, one little burn, one raised pin and they are done. if you're anywhere near Essex help yourself. 970 x 1900, 100g, 150g

I'd be in for a few, definitely.

Ok, growing concern. Like planting peas. I'd guess most people just want 3 lower grades of belts?

Also, Sorry, Sawdust. Yeh I missed your point about *wide belts. Apologies mate.
