Belsaw belt sander

Monte Burch.  Gun Care and Repair.  Winchester Press, 1978.
Nice little machine!

The Family Handyman, April 1985
The Belsaw company started in Kansas City, Missouri in the 1930's. In 1983, they merged with the Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Foley Manufacturing Company to become Foley-Belsaw.  The companies split apart some time later. Foley-United makes tool grinders. Belsaw today seems a shadow of its former self, but still makes molding pattern knives and supplies parts and manuals for the older machines.
