Re-glue butt splice on belts?

Took out some different belts that had been siting about 4-5 years and the moment they tensioned up, the joint separated. This happened to 3 belts so I'm not happy tossing these ceramic belts into the trash.

Is there a suitable adhesive that can be used?

I seem to recall we had some discussion about that years ago and the results were fairly depressing.

I know exactly how you feel when you take a brand new belt, put it on the grinder, and then have it come flapping off a few seconds later. Dangerous, irritating, and so aggravating to lose the $$ spent on that belt!

God bless Texas! Now let's secede!!

It's in your best interest to just trash those belts and buy new ones. It's not worth the risks trying to repair them involves.

Oh well. I suspect that whole box will yield the same breakage. Thanks for saving me the time of attempting to fix them.
