The two end caps, side by side - Buck ...

Oct 15, 2018 A comment on the compression vs tension springs. The first grinder I built was a pretty close copy of the KMG clone with tension spring. Tracking was so-so. For whatever reason, I never fully understood why, but after I changed to compression the tracking improved. It might be nothing more than the amount of tension that was put on the belt.
Apr 01, 2016 That said, using a belt grinder for finish sanding, especially in wood, would be an exercise in frustration. This is a tool thats meant to turn metal to powder faster than you can blink, even with a 220 grit belt on it youll still blow through wood faster than youd think possible.
