Marco, we just moved into a 1917 victorian and refinished our maple floors. Well, to make a long story shorter, do not use a belt sander! You will be very disappointed the results! I bought a Silverline drum sander with all stages of paper, an Alto edge sander and a Clarke orbital sander as I will be refinishing lots of flooring. Refinishing floors is an art and it takes practice to do it right but there is no reason not to give it a try as long as you know you can live with the results. The proper equipment makes all the difference in the world.. I don't know what your timing is, but I will be coming to Denver in the next few weeks and would be happy to let you borrow these units if you will just pay for the supplies you use.. I used an oil based Poly and they turned out fantastic..
