500 belts

So, when I used to make the cut forms, I worked the inside edge with 1/2x24" belts on the dyna file. I'm going back to using those tools again and find my old supplier sold out about five years ago. I did find a new one for 180 belt and 320 belts but I have not been able to find a 500 grit Aluminum oxide. I used to see that 3M made them. Any ideas?

They got 400 and 600 grit. I just use the worn out 400's.

I can get 320's and that's a good jump from the 180. Going to 400 is too little a jump and I would have to cut every belt by hand from the ones you put out there. I actually have cork belts this size but ten years is a long time to lose track of a market . I still need a 500 1/2 x 24. On the cut forms, it is really the perfect stupid finish. I used to be able to get 9 micron! ( Still have a few!). I'll try cutting my own 600 belts so that was great! Now I need to rebuild a dynafile from 1987. It has no plastic parts.

I am such a dinosaur...

I ran my bigger gloryhole today after a year away. That was really fun.

www.supergrit.com. These guys say they make custom belts. I've dealt with them and they were good to me

I keep forgetting to get my belt suppliers name while at the studio.
They will custom make almost anything if they don't already have it in stock. If you still need them, give me a call monday midday. Memory just keep getting worse and worse.
