Are these less prone to loading than Aluminum Oxide belts - or are
they just longer lasting in the event that I don't irreparably gunk
them up like I usually do?
Care to share any tips on a) avoiding loading in the first place and
2) salvaging those for which I've ignored (a)?
Not happy with the tracking adjustment on the PC352VS.....

The question isn't "are there weapons of mass destruction?",
the question is "who has them now?"
Zirconia belts can be loaded and cleaned over and over unless you load
it with a molten gunk such as some paints. But they do last much longer.
I have only purchased one for my large sander (80 grit for hogging off),
and it has lasted through many AO finer belts that I use for finishing
off. I used to use a zirconia disk on my outboard spindle on my lathe
for sharpening. Never wore it out.

I wonder how much tooth enamel was worn away in those days.
they don't seem to load up as much as most belts. they are far more aggressive
and lest a hell of a lot longer. well worth the cost. I use up a lot of them and
AO belts would cost me a fortune and be slower.

The "big gummy blocks" are blocks of crepe rubber. Before I spent money on a
block, I had some old crepe rubber soled shoes and took the heel, the
thickest part, and used it to clean a sanding disk to see if it would work.
When my old shoes wore down, I then bought a couple of blocks and use them
all the time.
