I bought an Amadeus a few years ago (used). The previous owner included about 5 belts and a spool of thread with the turntable. Four of the belts broke; the last one has lasted a long time. Any day now I'm waiting for my final belt to break. So, a few questions:
1. What makes some belts last longer than others?
2. What are the "tricks" to tying up a good belt?
