    My scarf joint was 1-1/2 long and went straight across the belt. Used ShooGoo and it has years of use.

      That being said I suspect that for belts Loctite would likely specify one of their more flexible and shock resistant formulas of CA. In fact as I typed that last bit I seem to recall that the new plastic round belt for watchmaker's lathes is joined with CA glue.
      I've always used a melt joint for the little Boley.

      Shoe goo has always let go easily for me. No good.

        Hi Guys,

        The CA that was used is for plastic application and is this product. https://www.acehardware.com/departme...-epoxy/1008713

        As I said I have been doing good with the first application in 2009, so hopefully you can have the same results.

          There is also a black superglue that has rubber mixed in. It is sold to the hobby community for gluing on tires to wheels for rc cars since it is somewhat pliable when set. IC-2000 Rubber-Toughened 1oz CA Adhesive Glue https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002N507I0..._RqFSFbHJFV25X

            Well, the belt is still good, but I had planned to replace it with a serpentine belt whenever it craps out. So far, it has not, but that is good info, and I'll make a note of it.

            Thank you.
