That's a good idea John. I may even have a supplier of such product and as he's a fellow P5 owner who works in the business of making, repairing and replacing belts he might have a ready supply of old belts.
I've sorted it out now , two lengths of square 1/4 " rubber used for old catapults available on ebay wound together with self amalgamating tape .Holds staples a treat plus it's waterproof so no risk of rot
We call it windlacing here too, as they do in the US. So if anyone in the UK or Europe is looking for Furflex on the web and wants to increase the results; try searching for windlace and windlacing as well.
My theory is that we downunder originally adopted the US term, or more likely I suspect, windlacing or something similar was also the original UK name and that Furflex was a brand name that became generically applied - like Hoover (UK usage), Biro, Thermos, etc.
Windlacing describes what it is and does. It's a draft seal. Whereas Furflex sounds like a brand name.
