I received my order from Hans yesterday.  Took less than 2 wks.  I order 8" diamond expando belts and two 8" diamond flat laps for my Covington flat lap.  I got belts from 280 up to 3000.   The Belts have a homemade look to them and no grit designation except for a card with color coding for grit.  I have currently used the 1200 and 3000 only because that is the stage i was at with a couple of cabs.  I have not done much with the expandos but I am impressed with the performance of these belts from Hans so far.  After the 3000 I didn't have to do much on the polish wheel.  The fit was about the same as the SiC belts I was using - Not too loose not too tight, just right.   Again, I am a novice but I like these belts!

The flat laps I ordered were only $7-$8 a piece and they are as good as any I have used so far. Thumbs up for Hans  yes

I have an Ameritool and have used the metal diamond discs that are referred to above. But I always tend to go back to the type discs that came with my machine or the all-u-need discs. I get a more polished finish with them. But even though I have up to 3000 in the metal discs I can't recall every going that far with them. I usually go up to 1200 then over to my Ameritool discs starting at 600.

I have a 6" sintered wheel from Hans and it's performing very well. It came missing the bushing and they were quick to respond and send one free of charge.

I bought 2 sets of belts from Mo Hans last summer. An 8" and a 6" set. I have worked up 60 or 70 cabs and they are working well. Shipping was cheap and surprisingly fast. Out of curiosity I ordered a 60 grit 8" belt. It has come in pretty handy on a couple faced specimens.

Has anyone done a couple hundred cabs on these yet? I'm curious how well/if they can stand up to heavy long term use.

I've been using them for five years.  The coarser the grit the less time I get.  They hold up better than any other diamond belts I've used, but the ones I have are a super tight fit on the drums.  They are neoprene, not cloth backed.  I also use a sintered 80 grit and a plated 220 grit wheel from Han's.  They also work quite well.  My original order had to clear customs, and that added a considerable charge to the order.

I have used them for several years, the 14000 has done 3-400 cabs still good. they are a fraction to small for the expandos,tried working with Han's never ever came to a resolve. My solution was to buy the Lortone split drums and they work okay on them.I was hoping this issue had been resolved but quess not.
