RE-ATTACHING OLD FOLEY BELSAW STRAP GRINDER BELTS

Fonzie777's picture

I have an old Foley Belsaw strap grinder I use occasionally.  A bunch of my belts have gotten so old that they fly apart at the joint.  They are an inch wide, pretty much like a long inch wide belt sander belt.  They have an angled butted joint and originally appear to have been connected with what appears to be a strip of reinforced clear acetate tape (it must have been pretty special tape).  I have been trying reinforced shipping tape,  extra sticky flashing tape (Protecto Tape) and the last thing we tried was iron on bluejean patch with a little super glue at the edge of the joint.  It ran about 4 minutes.  I have several belts that are good except for the joint and know there has to be a way to do this.  Has anybody had any success re-attaching these?

If you can find sphere over at "My Place" (JJ Walters site), I'd ask him.

The heat is doing your glue in, find some type of glue good up in higher temps.

Thanks Calvin -  I searched the JJ Walter name but didn't get anything with a "sphere".  I overlooked the "My Place" - I'll try that thanks.
