Ahoy All ,,,,, Out here where the Sun sets in the West, Singapore that is ,,,, sanding belts for portable electric belt sanders, have a very short shelf life.
Well it is the diagonal glued joint that deteriorates and older belt joints, just come apart after a minute or two of light use.
The belts that have that reinforced tape over the joint, last a little longer, than the belts that are just glued together.
I need your help to save my slightly used very expensive 3M zircon (green) belts, from the trash can.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to re-connect, D I Y, a delaminated joint on a belt ?
The last straw was when last week I was sanding with a 40 grit Zircon belt , half of the joint gave way , that jamed the belt and that broke the cogged rubber drive belt , on my Bosch 3 X 21 sander.
Not good says I , I do need some Help .
