    sanding belts or belt sander

    A friend wants to make a turned letter opener using only wood. but He can't find any sanding belts here is the original post.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Chuck

    Since I am such a schlepp at a belt sander, I had an idea. I have an old crapsman band saw that doubles as a belt sander. I feel that I would do much better being able to see the sanding action, as well as having only a 1" wide surface doing the actual work. Trouble is I cannot find a 1"x80" belt anywhere. I'm tempted to go buy one of these http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...storeId=10051& amp;langId=-1&catalogId=10053&productId=100618976&N=10000003+9 0401+500916 but I don't want to buy a POS. Does anyone either have a source for a 1"x80" belt, or have any info on this little sander? TIA

    Unconfuse me. Wats a turned item have to do with a belt sander?
    His post is equally confusing. What does he want?
