Help with my Makita 4" Belt Sander issue please!
I don't use my old Makita 4" Belt Sander all that much these days but needed to us it last week.
It spat the sanding belt in about a minute, so I got a new one out of the box [old stash] and the exact same thing.
After 5 belts let go, all along the seam I gave up using it and put it away for another day.
My question is please ladies and gents;
Does the join in the sanding belts become fragile as with age or is the issue with the machine and or the operator?
Could I overcome that but adding a layer of the fiberglass filament tape?
Thank you in advanced, Cheers crowie
