V-Belt Measuring DeviceRobinson Lawn & Garden, 110 SE 2nd St., Stigler, Okla. 74462 (ph 918 967-8662): "I came up with a V-belt measuring device that lets me know what length V-belt I need whenever an existing belt breaks or wears out and I don't know how long it was. Using contact cement, I glued a cloth or plastic ruler onto the back side of a 1/2-in. wide, 100-in. long used V-belt, covering its entire length. I wrap the belt around the idler and pulleys, and wherever the end of the belt comes to on the ruler tells me the belt length that I need. The belt could be of any length. I'm in the lawn and garden business and find that a 100-in. ruler works best for my needs."
