RE-ATTACHING OLD FOLEY BELSAW STRAP GRINDER BELTS
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?
