Dear Bob and Lois,,,, gosh that seems like an excellent idea, to use iron - on patches,,, and I want to try that for a sanding belt repair !
Just where could I order these iron - on patches, from ???? Walmart , maybe ?
Here in Singapore , my Chinese-Singaporean wife, "Lang" , says that she doesn't think that we can find the "iron-on" patches way over here , in S'pore .
Would you suggest another source, other than Walmart, if we can't get the patches mail ordered and sent over here from there ?
Of course we went to the 3M sanding belt distribuator over here, first , but he didn't have a solution or a way to help us, to get our Zirconia sanding belts, re-glued or re-laminated,,, back on line,,,, He wouldn't re-glue his failed splices, either !
International cruising requires inovation and creativity to solve mid-cruise problems, and I think your "fix" , just might work, to solve my sanding belt delamination problem .
Now to find a source for "iron-on" patches, that I can get mail-ordered , to Singapore ,,, any ideas ????
