Belt Sander 2000x50 / 72"x2"
Hi Al 

Quote:You can always cast extra wheels, if the double-loop puts too much wear on the contact wheels.

All I will need to do is turn the worn out rubber off the wheel , re mount wheel in mould , fill mould with rubber , jobs a good one  Big Grin  , I work in an industry that uses Urethane wheels /tyres  a lot on concrete and they are very robust lasting years . 

And to get a true profile ( 180 degrees ) for a tube notch  of say a 1 inch tube the belt does need some assistance .  Then there is the time it takes to cut the notch , say 30s to 60s  not long , so I reckon I will get a fair few notches out of a set of guide wheels .

Rob - this is where the smart-arse in me points out that you could have cast aluminium wheels (for those of you in the US - the second "i" only appears if it is cast correctly) if you hadn't sold your furnace Big Grin

Hi Darren  Rotfl

This is where the smart -arse   in me flips you the bird Big Grin  , 

The thing is mate there are only two wheels the same size ,so I would need a pattern for each probably 8 different sizes in total   ,I only need one set , so it would be quicker to just turn them from sold and miss out the pattern making and casting , yes if I did not have bar stock or were to need say 5 of each ,then fair dinkum .  

Cheers Rob
