What I Learned Today...

If you have a 2X72 belt and you want to make it into a 1.75X72 belt attach your tool rest and start your grinder without making sure the belt is centered! The belt will rapidly move to one side and shear off the unwanted portion.

Seriously I usually spin the darn belt by hand and make sure it's OK. Surprised the heck out me when it shot to the left and took off about .25" of my nice Blaze belt! Oh well you live you learn...
