hey everyone,

i've been off the radar for a while... but i'm back...
and wondering if anyone has any tips on either projector belt repair or do it yourself home made projector belts.

i've moved back to canada from amsterdam, and am now living in a very very small town (less than 5000 people and only one traffic light)... so there aren't any stores that sell these sorts of things here (there's just one pub, two restaurants, a cafe, a bookshop, and a bowling alley... maybe a few other little shops).

i'm working at a small media arts centre, and trying to get people excited about film (capital F)... meanwhile, i'm also trying to move my own art practice away from projected film into projector performance... i've got 5 projectors here (two of which are analyzers - yeee!)... but i've got major belt problems....

any recommendations?
i've got an eiki, a bell and howell, and a lafayette, who need some special belt lovin' care.

thanks so much,

amanda dawn christie
