But the 50 grit would take longer...correct? Also, which would be more apt to burn the temper out....lower grit or higher. Of course I understand other factors are involved such as speed and pressure.lawnmaniac883 said:Keep in mind if you go with the 36, you will go through blades much faster, I would go with a 50 grit or so.
Just curious... How wide is your belt? I see industrial ones that have a 4" to 6" wide sanding belt on them. Actually that's a pretty neat deal. Just take the blade and hold it at the right angle, using the platform i assume, and push it against the belt. In 10 seconds pull it off and chack it, if it's not done just repeat. The whole cutting edge would get the same amount removed all the way across.South Florida Lawns said:The kind on a stand. With an 80 grit belt. It seems to do the trick and keeps the blades even.
The 36 will take off material quicker, but not more of it. It is the operator that determines how much material to remove and not the size of the grit.lawnmaniac883 said:Keep in mind if you go with the 36, you will go through blades much faster, I would go with a 50 grit or so.
