Tru-Grit also has those belt cleaners and about the same price. They are very handy ....

You don't need the 80 grit. 60 and 80 do the same job, just preference as to which you prefer. I find 80 to be a little too fine for hogging metal and 120 cleans up after 60 grit just fine so 80 is unnecessary ...

It does a little if you're sanding scale off, but it doesn't sharpen a worn belt it just unclogs them. It helps to run the cleaner across before use, just run it lightly across as it's supposed to lubricate the belt. I have noticed the belts don't get clogged up with wood as much when I do.

I used 80's 20 years ago but hadn't for at least 15 years so I doubt I recommended them any time recently. I think Kyle should try every belt that catches his attention over the years but obviously no one can afford a sample of every belt right at first. Besides, as your skill level progresses experience may change your mind about what belts to use (as it did with me).

A rubber belt cleaner is something you should have. You could simply order one along with your belts and save yourself a trip to the hardware store ...
