    Default Where tool post grinder flat belt??

    Where might I look to find a flat belt for a tool post grinder.??
    I was gifted some things when my cousin passed, and a couple tool post grinders was in the mix.
    The rubber flat drive belt is old an stiff dry rotted.
    Where might I find replacement?
    The other grinder totally needs a belt it is not present.

    MSC has TheMac grinder drive belts

    McMaster-Carr has made-to-order flat belts

    I have bought flat belts from McMaster and they were top quality. JR

    Oh. Also used SDP and they are good belts also but a lil pricey.

    The belt for my Dumore 44 is flat but it's not rubber. It's some kind of polymer infused fabric and doesn't stretch at all. I ordered them (one and a spare) from McMaster years ago. You don't want rubber for high RPM.

    Don't. And then throw the grinders away.
    Unless they're going on a sacrificial lathe, grinders are the antichrist.

    Antichrist? na. No worse than sandpaper polishing; cover the lathe ways and more, clean it after... you will be fine.

    If you give us the belt dimensions people might be able to give you more specific help.

    Some of the older KO Lee tool and cutter grinders used 1 inch wide flat belts.
    I thought I saw some listing on eBay a week ago or so.
