  • Cheap source of 9x20 drive belts???

    I never figured why they chose to use such an in-substantial drive belt on the 9x20 lathes.

    Mine snapped on an interrupted(250rpm) cut on what will be a new base for the compound.

    I do plan on making new pulleys and using a thicker belt in conjunction with a 3phace motor and a VFD when I move the lathe into my new shop(waiting for the snow to clear so that I can get started on it).

    In the meanwhile I need a source(that exports) for the belts so that I can buy a 10-pack(locally they cost 40$, or thereabouts).

    on eBay is the only source I know of... and they're very affordable. I've bought from him in the past. All good. He lists "Europe" for shipping. I would expect Norway would be no problem then.

      Thanks, appreciate it!

      It ordered a few, however it required me to sign up for paypal as the trial option didn't support the notion of a world outside of North America.............

      It would appear not, I just got this reply"We're sorry, we are unable to process your request at this time." when I tried to order.

        I bought some for a 9x20 lathe I had years ago at E.B. Atmus. I'm sure they still got them.

            These folks are a little cheaper and quick. I just bought a 5M560 for a project I'm working on and they were great to deal with.

              If you put the part number and description in a Google search along with your location many times you will find somebody closer to home.

              Dunno if they have an outlet in Norway though.

                  Yeah, and since Gates has so many types of belt, this one is called "Polyflex" --- and, there are several sizes of IT
                  If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something........
