The manuals refer to a "Krikit" tensioner for setting/measuring v-belt tensions. Anybody got a source on these and how much they are?

About 20 years ago, I wrote to Gates Rubber Company, 999 S. Broadway, Denver Colorado 80217 inquiring about the purchase of one of these instruments.

To my surprise, they sent me one without charge. Needless to say, I have purchased Gates products whenever possible ever since.

Hope this is helpful.
