Once again the good Doc has outdone himself. Went through fixing a very popular problem with R8 – cracked plastic pulleys It’s a very cool machine. Kudos to you for putting some needed attention and support to these machines and their users.

Results 1 to 10 of Maanual have an electronics shop near me with a whole isle of the things and someday I mean to take a couple belts there and see if I can find a match. Just curious as to the options. So the bonds on the pulleys hold well so far.

I really have no clues though.
