Operator error stops production...

So I've had the misfortune of relying on technology and have forgotten some of the basics...
If it wasn't for BendTech and my TubwBandit is be lost!

I left my shop laptop at home as I was drawing up some tube work and I had to breakout the ole soap stone and shop floor.... Stupid math, but got it done....Then slap the tube in the bender, make the first bend and POW.....the drive belt on the TubeBandit broke due to my dumbass leaving my wrench in the die which hit the pot switch... After cussing a bit, I finished the bend the old fashioned way...
How can something so simple bring everything to a halt?? It's worse than not being able to find one of the 20 tape measures or 100 Sharpies i have floating around!

Time to order spares

Clint...you happen to have other spares just in case?

Yes I too find myself getting spoiled. Had the battery die in my POB gage in the middle of a multi-bend tube. Chaos.

found the belts from one of my vendors, got spares on the way

With the removal of the degree wheel to install the TB it was a tad aggrivating making the rest of the bends, but the project pressed on

My miller helmets chew batteries. The number of times I have had none, and had to get the job done!

Sorry I missed your thread. I do have spare belts floating around someplace and I'll try to look up what size they were. They are a 3/16" wide MXL timing belt, but I can't recall the size/# of teeth.
