Belt sander help

I've got one of the discontinued Delta 1 x 72 belt sanders but am having belt problems. The ones I have separate at the glue seam after just a few seconds use.

What brands of belts are reliable?

I have had that issue with aging belts where the joint is losing it's adhesion capabilities. Get fresh belts from a reputable supplier. Be careful to not grind a sharp or narrow edge because this may catch on that splice separating it from the backing.

Tru Grit has been my go to for abrasives. This is their 1x72" list:
