Re: Maintenance for industrial-style break belt on vintage loom

Claudia Spaulding

We have an old Gilmore loom with a friction brake with a belt very similar to the one described..  it began to slip and needed replacing. I called Gilmore and found out that it was originial purpose was a fanbelt for an automobile.
We went to local auto parts store and found that it was still available!  it was a bit tricky to install but it did. Still working!
