  1. Here is an online calculator when you get the reducer installed. Need the center to center and the diameter of the 2 pulleys. You also have some adjustment in the system. However, I still made 3 parts store trips to match mine. It will get you in the ballpark. Buy a couple, return one. Parts guy asked me if that was the last swap. https://sudenga.com/resources/figuring-belt-lengths-and-distance-between-pulleys/
  2. I could copy the paper pattern and us mail it Frodo.
  3. I’ve got an old Italian Colt copy 22 long rifle single action. Swapped a welding job for it maybe. Used to fan it all the time. Ever so often a bunch of parts fall out in the driveway and I order more from Numrich Arms. It is fun.
  4. Here is an ankle job I did for a Bond Arms that laces over my boot, left hand. Not sure how to send pattern.
  5. You can miss really fast fanning. Barrel goes everywhere. The cylinder locks up with a half moon bolt that extends from the lower frame into a slot milled in the cylinder. Normal speed, it comes up, locks, cylinder stops. Fanning, it slams to a stop with the bolt barely in. Chips the cylinder and or bolt. Bob Munden used to build revolvers with hardened inserts milled into the cylinder.
  6. Arbo Ajoala is the guy who James Arness guns down every night in the opening of Gunsmoke. And few things are harder on a single action than fanning.
  7. If your belt has gotten slippery or your pulleys glazed wth oxidation, use some Bon Ami (or Ajax powder) on the pulleys and run them a little. Will take the glaze off.
  8. Hers is a 206RB manual. Not sure if it’s close. https://www.supsew.com/download/Consew/Consew 206RB Operating Instructions.pdf
  9. I’ve only got one dozer so I can’t stretch a glued strap hitch to hitch to test.
  10. You talking about this stuff? I assume it’s for furniture considering the boards on the front. Used it to put laminate top on something for my wife. When I started leatherworkng I grabbed it and did some project. Stuck ok. Just too difficult container for small jobs.
  11. Your topic is off topic in the Leatherwork Conversation forum. Not sure where it goes, but it’s not conversation about leatherwork. But I guess we can all chime in. Specifically who did you want to chime in?
  12. I think if a topic starts one place and gets moved it is still visible, but some stuff does not seem to follow that logic.
  13. I felt similar a few months back and posted that the political stuff bothered me. I got good advice- follow what interests you, leave the other alone. Since then some discussions have drawn me in and I appreciated the chance to discuss some topics important to me. When the discussion gets stale I look at something else. I do have to skip out when people attack or cuss me personally. I cuss lots of things, not people. Nothing is more futile than an online argument with someone you will never meet, or may not even exist. I have been on a lot of online forums and they all have an off topic or adult area to look at or leave alone. Your choice. My wife does not like violent movies, so we don’t watch them. Our choice to avoid that channel. This forum is by far the most civil and sensible one I have ever looked at. The best way to avoid disputes is distance from the disputer. If a post angers you, it’s also good to wait till tomorrow to reply. Most things look a lot better the next day.
  14. I use it on edge. I thought you meant on the surfaces. It is rugged on edges, very stiff. Nasty if it gets on the wrong place.
