Help needed with a "Friendly Flesher" machine

Discussion in 'Tanning' started by rvandonsler, Oct 18, 2017.

  1. I have a fleshing machine made by "Friendly Flesher" I've searched on here and all over the web to find the correct belt size for it as the machine wobbles and leave jagged marks on hides... I was wondering if anyone had the same machine if they can tell me the belt size or if anyone has experienced the same issues..

    Thank you,
  2. I have one. i will check and see if I can find a size on it.

    Take the belt to a NAPA store. They can size it for you.
  4. Awesome thank you so much Bucknut!!! When I got the machine it didn't come with a belt so I just went to the auto store and got one that I thought fit.. not sure if it's it but just want to double check..

    Make sure your pulley's are aligned properly. That can cause chattering
  6. Meant to check sooner. My belt says INSP R or A 16 on it. Not mechanically inclined at all. Does that mean its a 16 inch belt?

    "A" denotes the belt width, "16" in the inside circumference in inches...learned that at MS Delta Jr College 45 years ago, LOL!
