I'm after some advice, I have a Startrite LM260 planer thicknesser, I changed a very worn and noisy V belt for a link belt costing £34 from Ebay. the link belt is dramatically quieter but I have removed five links since intalling it and it seems that the tension required to stop it from slipping is possibly going to cause long term harm to the motor pulley. I am happy to keep removing links if it will bed in but i am wondering whether i'm flogging a dead horse. With the V belt i could easily plane away whatever i wanted but it's getting bogged down and slipping straight away.
