Hello again.

Whats the rule of thumb for the tension of a htd belt?

Rotate 45degs 90???? (at mid point)

Have to weld the lower bearing supports in and dont want to get it wrong.

I can get about 90 degrees if I try very hard.....Seems to work ok with no belt slap....but it isnt so tight that it gives me too much friction...

Just like you said.
