The Clubmaker's Belt
Sander is a 1/4 horse

Graphite shaft tips should be abraided very carefully. Only the outer
layers of paint or clear coat must be removed. No graphite fiber should
be altered on the shaft. A specialty belt such as the Micron Finishing
Belt (#49715) will remove only the coating without weakening the
graphite fibers. Also recommended are the Trizact
Tip Preparation belts (#48715). For turning down ferrules
a white linen belt (#446C) or Durabrite belt (#49715) should be used.
Always wear protective gear when working with the Clubmaker Belt Sander.
Eye protection must be worn to prevent any foreign matter from contacting
the eyes. The high speed motion of the belt will also lead to cuts and
abrasions of the skin. Gloves are recommended for this reason. Be aware of
keeping loose clothing from moving parts.
