I wouldn't know as I've been using the original belt for all these years. Have you had problems with new replacement belts? Are they breaking at the original joint or elsewhere? McMaster has 1/4" belt stock that you can buy, cut, and weld yourself.juan antonio said:Is it just me or have Kreitlers belts quality gone down since Al passed?
Has anybody found a durable, quiet, 1/4"polyurethane replacement for them in both the 72" and 42" sizes?
Let me know if it works better. So far, my joints have held up under my use which, so far, has only been up to around 400W (1 min intervals). That's the workout that always makes the cracks in the belt turn into complete breaks.juan antonio said:I'll try the soldering iron, maybe I'm loosing something to the flame.
