Re: V - Belt

I was thinking that they wanted a V-belt because it was easy to machine the pulleys. This was one of the "simple" projects I did during my intro to manufacturing class.

A lathe is all you would need. Sure some other tooling would be nice. But a lathe is all you would need to make your own pulleys. Food for thought.
