  • Oddly satisfying

    A belt coming off, keeping its shape and running across the shop floor.

    Did a burn-out when it hit floor

      From the looks of the floor that's not the first time it's done that
      Guaranteed not to rust, bust, collect dust, bend, chip, crack or peel

        I wonder what the 0-60 feet per second time was....

          I think a coarser grit belt would have hooked up a bit better coming out of the hole

            Very cool - there's so much physics going on in that short little clip, check out the way the belts profile changes shape from large up front to small.

              I read an account years ago of some stage magicians who had an annual get together in Mexico. One year one of their number couldn't attend and the other guys made up a story to tell him about what he missed. They told him they'd seen a local magician with a rubber band trick where he'd flick the rubber band and it would come back to him. Total fabrication. Well the home bound guy was fascinated with the idea and spent quite a bit of time experimenting and actually perfected the phantom trick.

                -Of course it has! You think the guy standing there videoing it was just looking at the grinding wheel going round and round?

                Nope, he knew what was going to happen because it'd happened before.

                  -There was a story of a guitarist who liked a classic rock song (like 60s stuff, Eagles or Zeppelin or something) and liked the guitar riff, so he practiced mightily to try and duplicate it. It proved surprisingly difficult but he was finally able to play it, and play it well.

                  He later finally had the chance to talk to the original musician- this was way before the internet days- and told him how impressed he was with the musician's skill, since he'd made that oh-so-difficult track sound so easy. But, he'd practiced and practiced and was able to play it himself, and was proud of being able to do so.

                  The original musician essentially said "you should be even more proud- we did that riff by recording and superimposing three separate tracks".

                      I'd get a second sander so we could have races.
