I have an old "Skil" model 324 belt sander, and I would like to get some
sanding belts for it. The one that was on it measured 4 1/2" x 26 1/8" on the
outside. I am guessing I need one 26" long, because this one could have
stretched, and also I measured it on the outside of the belt (medium grit). I
don't know how accurate the measurement needs to be, and I don't have an owners
manual for this machine. It is a neat old sander, the motor sits parallel with
the belt, and it is gear driven, just like the side winder skil saws. I am
guessing this is from the 50's, and it weighs a ton.
Thanks for all comments!
It's terrible when I reply to my own message, but I got poking around on ebay,
and someone had some original belts for this sander and they were 4 1/2 x 26".
But if you happen to have a manual, or other info on this sander, please let me
I have one also ,the best sander I ever owned. the only problem Skill do not
support their products and no one to my knowledge makes a 4 1/2" belt
anymore . I have mine made to order at ,cant remember the name ,something
like klinghoffer in NC somewhere, they do all kinds of sanding stuff..
I find it is well wiorth the cost as the machine is exceptional ,I have even
sanded table tops with it ....mjh
