Same here but we used corn syrupIn a pinch if you have lots of slippage loosen the canvas and put some honey in there. It works and was used by my Grandpa on everything from chop crusher belts with the old flywheel set up. Back in the day on threshing machines as well. When applying to V belts be VERY VERY conservative. One or 2 drops at the most. It will literally try and make the belt follow the pulley around vibrating like crazy or break the belts. You will never need a can of belt dressing again. On a canvas when thing get dry and polished the honey sticks fine particles of debri to the roller and canvas giving grip. You don't have to as conservative with it as a V belt application. I had a wore serpentine pulley that was wearing my fan belt out on my combine bad. I had a 1 1/2 day wait for a pulley and honey got me thru til the pulley showed up and made the new belt survive until the pulley showed up.
