Anybody have any ideas on a compact way to store and organize 2x72 belts. Im tired of going thru my 3 large hooks for various belts for the grinder! Thanks for any help!
I have mine on dowels glued into boards like Chris Railey, but man...I've found over time their starting to be found hanging in different places. kind of like 'well these two hanging over there are used up pretty good, and those three hanging over in the corner are just about shot but might have 1/4 mile left in them, and those ones way over there should be trashed but I could still use them on mower blades. I'll tell you, for some reason I find it hard to say...OK, this friggin thing is shot and it's going in the can right now.I have them on hooks on the wall. Of course, I'm a belt hoarder (i'm getting help....) so after the hooks fill up they fall on the floor, hang on my drill press, etc.
That's a nice setup. Keeping the belts clean from other dust is a good idea; especially the finer grit ones. All of my belts are out in the open. I'm still trying to figure out how to fix that. I don't have the room for a covered wardrobe or similar.I was sitting at my bench looking at the problem and BAM!! I spy an old vinyl covered wardrobe that was full of JUNK! So I emptied all of the junk out of it put a 2x3 with a bunch of hooks on it I had (modified the hooks to work for my needs) in a bin. And a 11/2 hrs problem solved. Still sorting belts. Cool thing is I can zip up the outside and keep most of the crud off of the belts. Maybe put a dehumidifier pack in there to keep them from getting damp?
