What tape do they use on Ferrule belts?

Recommended Posts

My favorite 'blue' ferrule 42" belt came apart where they tape the two ends together, I tried to epoxy it back but doesn't hold. They must use some kind of special tape.

Anyone have ideas about what tape to use?

Hmmm. I suppose if I wanted to try to fix it I would get some liquid "Tear Mender" and a piece of cloth. Then I would cut the cloth to the right size (probably 4 inches long?) and cover the cloth with the liquid, put it together with the cloth on the backside, cover with waxed paper, clamp between two boards, and let dry...

Piece of cake. ;-)

Of course I always have Tear Mender, cloth, boards, waxed paper, and clamps handy so I wouldn't have to go get anything.

Then again a new belt doesn't cost very much...(and the Tear Mender might not work).

Thx for the quick reply and (after doing some checking) I was surprised that the belts were so cheap.

thanks again MS256 !!
