I am wondering what the best way to clean wide belt sanders is. I was told that using rubber sticks would dull the grit. If you wash them, what do you put them in? Do you put them in a large pipe and soak them, or just spray a cleaner on then wash with a high pressure sprayer? Any help is appreciated.
From contributor G:
I used to use a purple solvent which I believe was called nu-grit. We did a knotty pine project and the belts were loading right up. We would spray the nu-grit on the belt, let it set up, and scrub it with a brush and let it dry and then we were back in business.
