Band lining set for narrow bands. They are still in the original box which has no mfr. name on it. The linings are in excellent shape and have red and green threads on the edges, I think Montgomery Ward sold some like that, not sure. There are 12 rivets in the original paper package. The box is fair, but starting to deteriorate. Put it on your display shelf or use the bands, I'll bet they are better than what is available now. $30.00 plus shipping. I can text pictures, but I can't email them so please don't ask. Thanks, Dave
Dave I will take them.
Wow! Sold in 3 minutes!!! Isn't this site wonderful?
Before you use the rivets check with a magnet, some of the sets used brass plated steel rivets. You can get the correct brass rivets from suppliers like Lang's. Some of the linings are thicker so get the longer rivets they sell.
Bands are spoken for. Thanks guys, Dave
If the old bands are too short, it is probably because the weave has "relaxed" thru the years. I set the rollers on my sheet metal slip roll almost touching and crank the band material thru the rollers till they are about 3/4 inches too long. I then dip about 1/8 inch of the lining ends into some kwik-poly. The kwik-poly will seal the ends of the band lining threads and they will not unravel. Kwik-poly sets up fast, so work fast when dipping the ends. I then rivet each end to the band with about an 1/8 inch overhang at the ends. Then work the excess band lining length into place on the band and then install the remaining rivets. I have had great luck with using old original band linings using this technique.
