    Are these kind of belts (in design) the same as can be put on flat belt applications? (Not V belt for Flat belt but flat for flat and V for V) Like the old lathes South Bend and all?

    In these old drill presses,everything runs true because they were made that way....buy a new Chinese one and the spindle has .015 runout,chuck has .015 runout,table adjustments wont hold,and they use tiny belts to get multiple speeds.And they use minimal size bases meaning they must be secured or tip over (un)expextedly.

    Remember that the sides of the belt do the pulling not the bottom of the V,keep the V up and off the bottom
    Are my kids/grandkids more important than "o"'s kids, to me they are,darn tooting they are!!! They deserve the same armed protection afforded "o"'s kids.
    I have been hoodwinked but not by"o"
    In God we trust,in "o" never trust

    Slowly getting it up and running. Will be using it to build my new, rather massive, reloading bench.

    And I'll certainly look up Baltimore Belting.

    Thank you,

    Richard: the reason you go to a bearing house to buy your belts is because they usually have a large selection of belts in 1" increments.

    I didn't mean shopping Bearing Houses on the internet I meant physically going to a Bearing House and finding the belt you need.

    Doesn't your parts break down give a belt dimension?
