I know I have seen threads on getting the new band material and bonding back to your metal, just not sure where at the moment.

Nice work Kenny. I was thinking the same thing. Many of the parts for old GTs are generic. I also check the surplus sites.

Also known as friction materials, these sheets and strips can be riveted or bonded.
Temperature Max. Operating
Pressure Max. Coefficient
of Friction Low-Friction Sheets 4,500 ft./min. @ 600 psi 600° F 600 psi 0.14 Medium-Friction Sheets 5,000 ft./min. @ 500 psi 550° F 500 psi 0.35 High-Friction Sheets 5,000 ft./min. @ 500 psi 550° F 500 psi 0.55 Metal-Free Strips 4,000 ft./min. @ 250 psi 500° F 250 psi 0.47 High-Strength Strips 5,000 ft./min. @ 200 psi 500° F 200 psi 0.51
Use low-friction sheets for a smooth stop. High-friction sheets provide immediate engagement.
Metal-free strips are also known as nonmetallic molded strips.High-strength strips, also known as semimetallic woven strips, have a brass wire woven into the material to increase strength and improve heat dissipation.
To Order: Please specify length: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, or 15 ft. High-strength strips are also available in 20 and 25-ft. lengths.

I made my own from metal strapping material from a shipping crate. I had the loops left so I used some small machine screws to attach. The lining was from McMaster-carr. I got the high strength (above). It came 1" wide and the strapping was 3/4". The material cut well on the band saw to match width. Then I attached the lining using flat head screws. The lining material drilled well and I used a counter sink so the heads would not get into the break wheel. I had to make my own wheel also which is a caster from McMaster i bored and broached.

Single stage blowers have paddles in the center of the auger to throw the snow up.
Two stage blowers have a paddle behind the auger which throws the snow up the chute.
