    It would be best if you have a variable speed to slow the speed.

    Would you take out the temper of the chisel? wouldn't you dip the chisel in water every once in a while to keep it cool?

    After almost 40 years as a cabinetmaker, these are good tips.  If you glue the folded sanding belt piece together with some contact cement, it's easier to use. 
    The only thing I would add is that he shouldn't be wearing his wedding ring (or any ring for that matter).  It's a good way to lose a finger if it were to catch when lifting heavy materials or in awkward situations.  Yes, you may get away with it for years but it only takes once to lose that ring finger and then you won't have a finger to wear the ring on : >)  Plus, sandpaper will scratch it all up and wear it down in a hurry…and that will make the wife not so happy.
    Better to be safe than sorry…

    A true blue collar worker with quite a bit of experience! I work in the Motion Picture Industry as a Rigger and Set Lighting Technician In the Electrical Dpt. These tips are excellent time savers and enable a person to get a job done on the fly. I think any thing we do in life outside of the "way we were instructed, just displays great amounts of experience. Any idiot can make it work when all conditions are perfect and as they should be… It takes a real man to improvise with a little gum and a shoe string, to "git er' done"! Cuz' I dunno bout u guys but " N-E thing that can go wrong, will. As it always does. Then what are you gonna do? Well, Im gonna clamp my belt sander to my make shift work bench! Thank you very much, Hobo! You rock. Keep up the good work. You helped me!
