Custom Drive Belts

We can make several types of belt to your specifications, and these can be supplied joined or you can join them yourself on the machine. Follow the links below for more information.

Nu-T-Link V-Belt

This is the superior replacement for the original "Brammer" black-fabric "round-end" link-belting that was held together with mushroom-headed metal pins each (usually) stamped with a letter "B". The new belts have only a slight curve to the end of each link and the head of the pins are now "T" section. Linking the belt - or the addition and subtraction of links - is very much easier for, instead of needing special "opening pliers" to stretch the holes and get the pins through, the holes in the belt links are in the form of slots.

Betalon Multiply Flat Belting

The ideal installation for any machine tool is an endless Betalon-Multiply belt: these are light in weight but immensely strong and stretch resistant. They absorb shock loads well, have a high coefficient of friction, enjoy a proven record of reliable industrial service and can be made in almost any combination of length and width.

Power Twist V-Belt

A new development of an old idea - a link belt without metal fasteners. This is highly effective on all lighter machine tools and especially useful on precision lathes and millers where a "softer" drive, free from vibration, is appropriate.

Polycord Belts - the genuine Swiss-made item (Solid Round Plastic Belting)

Polycord Belting - immediate delivery from stock. This makes an excellent, long-life application for hard-worked machines - from models though engravers to small lathes and millers, etc. Our solid plastic belting is made in Switzerland and of the very best quality. We can produce belts of practically any length down to 140 mm long using a jigged joint and heat weld. Although all belts stretch, Polycord is more resistant than most, especially when 6mm in diameter or over.

Hollow Round Plastic Belting

This makes an excellent, long-life application for hard-working machines. Our plastic belting is of the very best quality and is made in Switzerland. Hollow belts are easy to fit without dismantling the machine or having to melt the ends of the belt together. However, if you need a belt with minimum stretch, the solid type, available here, is the better choice.

Round Leather Belting

Early lathes, light-duty milling machines, drills, Singer and other makes of sewing machine and assorted power tools were often driven by a round leather belt, sometimes referred to in contemporary literature as a "gut" drive. This type of belting is also used in furniture and similar products. It is still available and usually in stock for immediate delivery. The belt colour is actually a light tan - and far lighter than shown in the photograph. Please note: the stated diameter of the material is nominal i.e. the measurement might be a little under or over the given figure.

Drive belt for Emco V10 and Mentor V10 lathe

Toothed drive belt for Emco V10 and V10 Mentor lathe. The belt should be 19 to 20 mm (3/4") wide and possibly marked 200XL x 75, iIf so, this belt is correct. However, some late versions of the V10 appear to have been fitted with the 25 mm wide (1") belt from the V10P. If your belt is missing, just measure the width of the toothed pulley. If the pulley is 25 mm (1") wide you'll need the V10P belt that can be ordered here: https://store.lathes.co.uk/parts/drive-belt-emco-v10p-lathe

Myford Super 7 and ML7R Drive Belts - PowerTwist

The only PowerTwist belt needed on the Super 7 and ML7R is from the countershaft to the headstock. The use of this belt guarantees that the lowest speed will be available as, when fitted with the metal-pin NuT-link there may not be enough room between the inner face of the headstock and the largest pulley on the main spindle.
From the motor to the countershaft, use a T-Link belt as available here.

Kennedy Hexacut Saw Belt

For the more-common Kennedy "Hexacut" Model 60 hacksaw the flat belt is normally 1" (25 mm) wide and 21.8" long (554 mm) - however, because the size may have changed over the years, it would be safer to measure your machine to get an exact figure. As the belts are custom made, if you order the wrong length a refund is not possible. An accurate measurement can be taken around the pulleys with a fabric tape measure or a strip of paper stretched round, overlapped, marked and then carefully measured.
