Get a Grip

Came across an interesting product from CRC recently: CRC Belt Grip.  Had never heard of the stuff before now.

CRC Belt Grip

Had a thought it might prove useful in the workshop – belt driven machines everywhere.  Planer, thicknesser, tablesaw, drum sander, bandsaw, drill press, lathe, belt sander, hand power planer, at least in my workshop.  Your mileage may vary.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I was thinking about how much slippage there may, or may not be.  How much power might be getting lost.  I’m thinking about testing one of the machines out to see.  Does anyone know how to test for belt slippage?

Anyone come across this product before?  Opinions?
