    Actually I have one of these I bought several years ago and never used. I use the balance tool, but never the sharpener. I got it thinking I could sharpen the blade on my finish mower without removing them. I plan to try it this winter.

    Re: Belt sander for blade sharpening?

    If you get a good one, it will work well enough for sharpening swords. But at that price point, the quality control is not great and I know a couple of people who bought those 1x30 sanders where the pulleys were not properly positioned and the belts couldn't be tightened properly. The belts were so loose that control over the edge angle is next to impossible. I got lucky with mine in that the belts are super tight. With high quality 3M Trizact https://mechanicguides.com/best-belt-grinders/ belts I can create very sharp edges on my blades with very good control over the edge angle.
    But for large-scale grinding when creating sword blades through stock removal, the belts are too small and the motor is underpowered, as fallen and brotherbanzai stated. Unless of course.
