So then anything that hasn t happened to you means its false? Or does it mean that you haven t done enough work to see it happen?

The bands take a set, letting the heat cycle under tension weakens the belt bonding. Extreme cases cause a thump-thump-thump and won t track before breaking.

I’ve done enough work….I’ve never seen it happen.

Shit happens.

Pretty much what it adds up to. I’ve heard and read about it in the past….never seems to be any real consistent rhyme or reason to it. I’ve rarely(if ever) heard about the problem in commercial shops, which kind of makes me lean to ‘shelf life’ argument.
I had a Klingspor? Rep ramble something about not ordering more than I could use in a year…I wouldn’t regardless, so I didn’t question him as to why….again, I suspect it might be a shelf life issue.

Who knows…shit happens.

For what it’s worth Bill, most of the belts I buy are either Klingspor, or Sia. Never any problems.
