Would anyone happen to know what size timing belt a circa 1976 LeBlond Regal(manual shift) lathe uses? LeBlond want $63.00 plus shipping. I am hoping that it is a standard off the shelf timing belt.

Thanks.

I have two different 15" LeBlonde lathes but not regals. I have not checked but I think they both have the same belt. If nobody else has the slam dunk answer for you, run a tape around the pulleys and I'll do the same.....who knows ya might get lucky.

I remembered to check the lathe that is at home, the belt on it is a "Durkee-Atwood" Synchronous 270H100. I run a tape around the two pulleys and it is right at 27"
Hope this helps.
