The older reeves drives were made of better quality metals, many of the newer reeves drives
are made of cheaper "pot metals" which will not work well with link-belts. A quality rubber belt
shredding apart will often damage some of the cheaper reeves drives on the market today. That
has to be one of the weak links when working with reeves drive lathes. When one of the newer
reeves drives get sticky you need to be gentle with cleaning them and getting them working again.
Newbies will pry on the reeves pulleys with screwdrivers and pliers and usually breaker them on their
first rodeo.
