    I just setup my new grizzly grinder, and a 80 grit belt that I ordered as well from them, and I ran it like 5 mins to test out the machine and it seems like all the grit is gone. I mean there is some left, but it really ate it up quick. Is this a common thing?

    Oh, and yes Im a newbie, so id imagine this question will be answer quite quickly as you all likely have plenty of experience with this.

    That will typically happen to some extent especially if you are grinding bevels with a new belt. What type of belts are you using?

    They don't have a name brand, they are silicon carbide and from the grizzly site

    Order some new ones from Rob (aka skookumRob) he can hook you up. It was probably a crap belt.

    Whatever your do don't get water on your ceramic belts. They don't like that ;)

    what type of ceramic did you have issues with getting wet? I know lots of guys using cool mist water cooling on their grinders without problems. I'm not sure what belts they were using but I was reading a long thread about it the other day on another site. Seems to be very common for guys who grind thin stock or bevel after heat treat. I thought about trying it but I'm not really interested in the mess it makes. I know the VSM ceramics will do fine with water.

    I use the Norton ceramics Grayzer... It's no problem with a little water but when you use a lot of water with the thinner belts you burn them out way faster.

    Makes sense. I have some blaze belts but hate them. When I work them hard or get them warm they all seem to give off a strange smell that I can't stand. They are the only bets I have used that have this issue. It sounds bad but the only thing I can think of to compare it to is Asian food. But not like a Chinese restaurant, but that weird food you smell when you walk into an appartment building and wonder what on earth someone is cooking. I don't mean this racially or anything, it is just seriously the only thing I can think to compare it to.
