Not really sure if this is the place to post this question, so if the mods want to move it, please do.
I have four types of belt sanders, one 6"x48" Craftsman, one 1"x42" Delta, one 3/4"x21" air sander, & one 3"x24" Rockwell belt sander, for each of which I have purchased belts. Now it seems when I go to use these various sanders, the belts keep breaking apart at the glued joint. The belts are still like new, just the joints are separating.
I have tried CA glue, but that is too stiff and the joint breaks again.
Belts are expensive, and I need to use what I have, if I can. Any advice will be appreciated.
