Lace machine with belt with some tension. Overlap belt to determine amount of excess belt to be removed. Mark match line with a marker and cut to length. Using treadle pliers, punch hole in non-staple end. Place belt back in place, hooking the staple in the newly made hole. Using the treadle pliers, close the staple. After a few hours of use the belt may need to be adjusted as the leather stretches. If this occurs, open staple and repeat process. Make sure not to over tighten as it may cause undue wear and tear on bearings. Should only maintain minimal tension as required for proper functioning of the machine.
