How would I go about finding a replacement for the broken belt on my 15-year-old, Chinese-made lathe? No one around here is familiar with the model.
Carol Reed: Check with beltsforanything.com.
John Brock: Measure the old belt and the sheaves, You can find just about any size belt at most automotive and tool suppliers, but I’d suggest you consider replacing it with a segmented style Power Twist Link Belt. It will give you more power transfer and quieter, more vibration-free operation.
