I melted my Santha...questions ensue
Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques
So I reattached the stem to the bowl, its a wee bit of a wobble, but its not like it didnt have one before...
I ended up using a poly-urethane adhesive used in the construction industry, called PL Premium.
I first tried it on a rock and piece of scarp steel. Be darned if I had to chisel it off.
Next i let a small blob cure for 14 days... then heated it in some hot water and chewed it..... I wanted to know if it had flavor or off gassing.....
Seemed not to,,, so I glued the stem/stalk back in, waited 14 days, and gave it a few cleanes with some sugar and a cycle in the oven.
All seems ok.
But now Im trying to figure out the tension with the Link-V belt.... the crappy belt I got from the auto store self destructed before one batch was out. <12hours. I think it was a) too wide 1/2" vs 3/8", b) too short (33") and it was tight!!!!
Before I put the Santha back together, can some one tell me how much slack should be on the the Link V belt?
At the area between the pulleys, how many inches slack should I see?
