How to Keep Belt Sander Belts Dry in Non-Climate-Controlled Workshops

Keeping sanding belts dry in plastic bags To keep your sanding belts dry and the glue tight, store the belts inside freezer bags during humid months.

I don’t have a climate-controlled shop. Over the years I’ve discovered that, during humid months, the moisture in the air sometimes loosens the glue seams on my belt-sander belts, causing them to break and come off during sanding. Here’s my easy fix: I now store my belts in resealable freezer bags. It keeps the glue seams dry and tight so they last much longer.
