Previously on MechMinutes: Timing Belts and Pulleys series, we’ve covered belt selection and setup including tensioning, alignment and wear signs. If you need to get caught up, check out episodes 1-5. In our final video of the Timing Belts & Pulleys series, we will be covering common application examples for timing belts & pulleys.
