are spare belts available?

You can pick up compatible belts that size easy at loads of places. Screw fix etc

Remember to educate yourself about bench grinder safety before using it.
Don't stand in front of it when you start it up as the first 30 seconds is when it's most likely to explode. If the wheel gets wet or damaged (tap test & visually inspect it), don't use it. Don't wear gloves as they catch, do wear eye protection & don't grind aluminum or anything likely to clog the disc causing imbalance.
Finally check the expiry date printed on the disc as they have a shelf life.

This isn't everything so look for further safety tips elsewhere. They're great tools but extremely dangerous if not respected.

Great tool I use it with a 120 grit belt for sharpening chisels and putting an edge on scrapers. Never had a use for the wheel though!

I might wait for the £5 off £45 spend at the end of the month then go and look for one, might even be reduced by then.

I'm tempted by the Generator as well.

Looks a good price. Wish I owned a shed!

Have they had those generators before? Anyone had any experience of them?

got mine, setup and adjusted sanding belt in 5 mins. Secured to bench.
Sharpened two chisels easily.

bad points - the tool rests are useless....

but well happy with purchase

bought one in Cheltenham. loads in stock. thank you very much

Bought one a couple of years ago.

Works fine for a cheapo grinder.

Anyone know if this is PUWER compliant?

Is this any good for finding gay men?

Yes, but only if you put it in your trouser pocket.

I think you'll find the one with the low IQ is the person who ignores the above and ends up in A&E. I'm not telling people they have to follow the above, just giving advice to avoid a trip to the hospital (or crematorium) for those that might not know.
Carry on as you wish, I'll make sure I go and give blood again next week to ensure there's plenty for idiots like you.
