    My 2 1/2 x 48 belt sander is a product of Texas Knife Makers Supply. I bought it 30 years ago, I guess that qualifies as durable.
    The belt in the photo is a 30 micron, it's only good for putting final touches on a knife blade. I use 60 and 80 grit belts for shaping scales.

    People wonder where the time goes, I wonder where it comes from.

    That luthiers friend look prety cool. Not that im going to go buy one. But hooked up to a drill press i bet you could make the thickness perfect. Not too sure how well it would work on shaping.
