2 X 48 SANDING BELT

Regular price $6.95

We offer a wide range of abrasive belts and discs specifically selected for the farrier's use.

ALUMINUM OXIDE (AO)
Often a brown material, used most often for maintenance of tools with finer grits (100, 120 and up). This material will not have good life when used to grind shoes or steel with coarser grits.

ZIRCONIUM OXIDE
A particulate material that gives better life than straight AO, working well for general purpose grinding of many types of material. Often has coolant coating such as with 3M 577 or 877 belt series.

CERAMIC
These belts will give the best life for metal use and many farriers have found these to be the best value even though they can be more expensive than Aluminum Oxide and some brands of Zirconium belts. Generally less expensive than 3M Zirconia. Common grit for grinding shoes is 40 on an expander wheel although they are available in coarser and finer grits.

3M CUBITRON
3M Cubitron 10'' expander wheel belts cut faster & cooler and last much longer than conventional zirconia & ceramic belts.
COMMON BELT GRITS
24-40 grit - aggressive grinds
60-80 grit - mid-range grinding
100+ grit - tool finishing/polishing
