Hi David

Lets no how you get on with the belt joining  :thumbup: ,,, mined when that tape gets old it sheds glass fibber partials when you unwind it from the roll , very itchy .

Hi Rob
            Finally got round to repairing an abrasive belt. This one had pulled away on the original scarf joint, so stuck it back together with clear Bostick  and re enforced the back with the tape, working well.

                                                                                 Cheers  David

 :lol: :lol: I have John ,,,, the type with 4"wide belt  with the disc on the side , hardly  use it , probably stick it up for grabs when i can get to it , I was thinking that a 1"or 2" wide , long belt  type would be of more use .

Rob,

I  have a small 1in wide one ( the sort from Machine Mart ) and its good for taking the corners off small lumps of metal, quicker than using a cutter in the mill....... :dremel:
