Solution for the RS-150 belt problem:
In the process of replacing the belts on my machine I discovered what is
probably the main cause for the belts jumping out of place. The pulley on
the left hand honing wheel are not in line with the other pulleys! They
should be exactly centered between the drive pulley on the grinding
wheels and the final pulley on the right hand honing wheel. When you
sight between the two pulleys on the LH honing wheel you should see the
drive pulley and the final pulley. Instead the sight line is beside them.
A fix is easy. Remove the LH honing wheel shaft and move one washer.
As shipped my machine's washer sequence was 1-2-1 starting from the
front. If you change it to 2-2-0 they are in line. This should really
help with belts stretching and jumping. I am no mechanical genius so I
think any decent technician could do this.
