Sherline uses a toothed belt running in a pulley that has no teeth. I've never had any problem with the belt slipping or stalling during normal lathe or milling operations with this setup. They do not invert the belt, since the belt has sloped sides, and the pulley has a matching slope. In practice, it is like a V-belt, but the teeth allow it to wrap around a smaller diameter pulley.On Tue, Mar 19, 2013 at 5:28 PM, David G. LeVine <dlevine@...> wrote:
Just as an aside, automotive multi-rib belts can be flipped inside out
if you really need a flat belt. If that doesn't transmit enough torque,
ribbed pulleys can be cut while running the belt inside out, then
flipped back once they are installed.
Another trick is to use automotive timing belts, inside out for flat
drives, with timing pulleys for 1:1 or 2:1 ratios.
