Endless lathe chips (re-adjusted the clutch on a Clausing 6913 lathe)

Hey Ed,
Up here, I'd look in the Yellow Pages under
"Power Transmission Equipment"
or maybe
"Industrial Supply"
and ask them for what you need.
Take care.

I worked in an industrial leather belt factory after school hours. The belt splicing glue they used was colorless and smelled of acetone, like Duco. jsw

Oh no! Now Ed has a list, too? Before ya know it, everyone's gonna have one, and who's gonna keep track of who's on whose list?

Several years ago,I bought a replacement belt for my SB"A" for something like $9.00. Last year I went to order another but declined to pay the $175.00 quoted. When I find that round "TUIT" that SWMBO gave me, I will pull the spindle and instal the serpentine belt I picked up for $1.00 at the re-store.

For the most part, likely the easiest and best way, go to a farm supply store, and you'll need two things. Clips for flat belting is often called alligator lacing, and it is used on the belting for round balers. There are two types, a 'hammer lock' that simply requires a hammer and flat surface, and a second, that requires a jig to close.
For belting, a lot of guys are using the rubber belts from round balers. Most of these are anywhere from 4-8" wide, but can be cut with a sharp knife, straight edge, and spray it with some WD-40 so the blade slides through easier. I know the local TSC sells the belting by the foot, so if you figure the length you need, and can buy it just that length, you'll have enough for several belts.....easily enough to last you!!

Ok, you're on the list. If some guy named Nunzio shows up at your door some night, it just means I put you on the wrong list...

Chuckle!
Double check! Gunner's a good guy, too, in spite of his detractors.

Tell Nunzio to wear a trauma plate. I reload and I have a machine shop. Its interesting what sort of rounds one can make up when one has time on his hands.
Though I do tend to shoot for the head on B70 targets

I did it for a 1" belt (and not much power through it -- a small benchtop machine) using gimp -- the fabric core plastic lacing. It is flat enough so you do not need grooves. You might need more parallel laces, depending on the torque to be transmitted.
O.K. Good Luck with it. (Probably already done, I've been busy the past few days. :-) DoN.
