I got the idea of looking to see what it cost to make homemade sandpaper belts for my belt sander would be. For me less than a $1 per belt. Math being about $30 for 20-25 Yards of sandpaper (roll) and $10 for epoxy. Around a good belt is $2.50 and cheap is $1.50 (cheap ones are not to fun...). I have seen a little video on this which is the reason I say epoxy. This person did a 1/2" over lap after filing the sand and then clued with epoxy. Clamping the epoxy is very flexible but I would not know what epoxy to use. And if epoxy is a good choice. Note: Roll on sanding paper is on a cloth like my current belts. So my questions being,
Q1) What glue would be best (Or Cloth tape?)?
Q2) Is 1/2" overlap ideal?
Q3) thinking a 20 degree cuts for the joint.
Can not think of anything else but anything on making these would be great. People do it and stuff, but I can not find how to do it!
