Help! My enrober belt has broken. What would be the quickest way to get it working?

This may or may not work, but, I have in the past replaced an automobile fan belt with pantyhose. Just cut one leg off, loop it around and tie a knot as tightly as possible. It will slip a little as the knot passes over the wheel, but other than that, it works and lasts a remarkably long time.

I was going to suggest a bra strap, that is what our  VW bus survived on for 2 days before we got to a mechanic when the  fan belt broke.

I have some bent links in mine. I bought some extra belt material to fix, but I'm too chicken to try it! I figure bent is better than what I would do to it. I have used a rubber band in place of the detailer belt. Works fine. Good luck.

Perfect sells sections of the belt material. They also have instructions. You have damaged too many links to repair, IMHO. Looks like something got jammed.
