Ruler on one side can act as a straight edge.
Used to do this all the time at Bearing Man and Belting Supplies Services, on a bigger scale. We used a skive though for the cut.
On the round belts we used a loctite product on a straight cut, not as brittle as supper glue.
Just another option.

Sounds yummy.

Solution to Johnny IC's problem.


Hi -Phibian guessed the solution,We were just making 100% sure that a BL 51 belt fitted the BL91.Imported all the way from my micro de which according to Vinyl engine forums the best belt you can purchase.Sorry about the picture.No cuts and no glue.
For,when money or oiled hands determine the voting outcome,particularly in a matter of such monumental importance,then no conscience or oath finds expression.
