Replace conveyor belt on Jet 10-20 drum sander
Well, it took me awhile but I finally found a little jet 10 - 20 drum sander I could buy. The guy had upgraded to a bigger sander and just wanted to move it, so he had $100 on his Craigslist ad and I happened to check my email 30 minutes after he posted it. I've missed about 5 so that feels really good! :-)
It needs a new conveyor belt though so here is my question. You can buy the original replacement from Rockler for 50 some dollars, or you can go to Highland Woodworking and get one for $15. The only review on that one said that it is a little thinner than the original. The description says that there is a sandpaper abrasive surface to that conveyor belt. Not knowing what I'm doing with drum sanders, I need wisdom from the drum sander gurus out there. Thank you, once again, for all of your help.
