    HOW I MADE A BELT TENSIONER FOR MY LATHE

    When I try to find out how to change the belts in my lathe I didní t find the belt tensioner. I found the screws to regulate the tension but there was no tensioner inside.So I decided to make a new one from scrap I had in my lab. I am very satisfied from the final result. In the future ití s possible I make some improvements.
