The ideal installation for any machine tool is an endless Betalon-Multiply belt; these are light in weight but immensely strong and stretch resistant. They absorb shock loads well, have a high coefficient of friction, enjoy a proven record of reliable industrial service and can be made in almost any combination of length and width. The belt joint is machine scarfed, prepared and heat vulcanised - and results in a tremendously strong unit. Of course, as with an ordinary V belt, you may have to dismantle pulleys, etc., to fit it, but the trouble taken will be well worth while - the drive to your machine will be quieter, smoother and much more reliable. This belting can also be supplied as a DIY kit with the ends ready scarfed and provided with the glue and instructions. When you order a DIY kit you, must, of course, measure the length you need very carefully. If in doubt about any aspect of this just phone 01298-871633 (09:00 to 23:00) for advice....
