If you have the plane(s) I'd just use them to remove the milling marks and skip the belt sander. Why use a sander to remove the milling marks and then use a plane to remove sander marks? Skip the belt sander and you'll do a better job quicker.Hello,
Was just wondering if planing after sanding, for example a smoothing plane to finish a board that was belt sanded earlier to remove milling marks, glue lines etc will damage the blade?
Or is sanding done strictly after any planing?
