Why would you want 8x89?

I build mainly small boxes. Some of them are tall. I'd like a bit more height on the belt to reach more surface at a time.

I'm using a 2hp motor to drive the belt, so I'm not worried about the increased resistance slowing down the belt.
Semper fi,

Grizzly sells a H4182 9" x 138-1/2" belt for their G9985 - 9" x 138-1/2" 3-Phase Industrial Oscillating Edge Sander. I doubt you will find anything shorter in a 9" but you might find a 60" long 20" wide belt sanding belt.

I would make the sander fit a common size belt.  easier to get for less money. a 6x80, 6x89 are common size belts. You could also go to a wide belt sander size and cut then to the width you like and get 2 or 3 out of one, but they are pricier belts. just saying think about it.

Cool Cool 

Just as well go 10" then if you have them cut to size.
And as others have said, check into the wide belt sander sizes.
