    Pulley/Fan Belt Welding Jig

    Fan Belt Welding Jig Holder. This is a jig that holds the belt material so both ends are centered on each other,
    then the belt ends are moved apart and heated with a soldering gun special tip,and the jig then closes the two half's together and thus forms the weld.

    Captain,
    How fast do you have to work between withdrawing the soldering gun tip and closing the gap to form the weld? Also, is there any surface trimming needed for the welded joint after it hardens? This looks like an interesting jig for making my welded urethane belts for my small Unimat lathe and milling head setup.
    Thanks for showing this, Paul

    Hi Paul, It is important to move the hot ends back together as quick as possible, With this machine the ends are mated perfect.
    Hello ED, urethane belts, they come any length you need and size on e-bay just type in urethane belts.

    Thanks to all for your interest....:O)

    I have to admit, it's the first time I've seen a homemade tool for this, and I'm happy to learn something new.

    Like DIYer, this is the first time I've seen such a jig. Reminds me of a bandsaw brazing jig. Thanks for sharing such an interesting jig, Cap'n.
