A word of warning for those who use belt sanders for initial leveling of glued up stock: I just got off the phone with a service rep regarding failure of the tape that holds the belts together. I found out the hard way that their belts are only warrantied a year. I have always bought in bulk to save money and after tossing dozens of belts, I just opened a new box only to have the belt fail in seconds! I have never seen this "warranty" of a year in print anywhere! After nearly 50 years in the woodworking business I've never had this happen before.
