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 yours 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 strip of paper stretched around, overlapped, marked, and then carefully measured.


Thread Dial Indicators for Boxford, South Bend and Smart & Brown Lathes

Thread Dial Indicators to fit Boxford, South Bend "9-inch" lathes and Smart & Brown Sabel, SAB and S lathes - with Imperial 8 t.p.i. pitch leadscrews and for other makes of lathes (such as the Harrison M300 and some Colchester Bantam lathes) with 6 mm pitch leadscrews. Use the 'down-arrow' box below to select the one you need.


Reversing & on-off Switch

A proper, European-made, high-quality, machine-tool class on-off and reversing switch (it can also be used as a simple on/off switch) with a maximum capacity is 5 hp. It will run either a 1-phase or 3-phase motor and is fitted in a neat box-type 64mm x 64mm x 57mm deep plastic enclosure easily attached to a suitable bracket or flat surface. Inside the housing the switch unit itself is cylindrical, very compact, and can be removed for insertion in another holder should this be necessary.


Hobbymat Lathe Motor Conversion

The usual problem with Hobbymat motors is a failure of the centrifugal switch or capacitor. We sell the correct capacitor and a set of detailed dismantling instructions for £21 + post (+ VAT in the UK and EU) that allows the motor to be converted to a much better "cap-start-cap-run" configuration - full instructions provided. The conversion allows the motor to start without the need for the troublesome centrifugal switch. 


Alligator Belt Lacing - Genuine American-made

Alligator Belt Lacing - the Genuine American-made product not the inferior copy made in China. A length of clip is hammered in at each end of the belt and joined with two sections of the special oval pin supplied - these being designed to work back-to-back. Alternatively, a length of nylon or red-fibre rod can be used. A detailed instruction sheet is supplied with each clip. "Alligator clips" are made in various sizes but five cover most belts in common use.


Bed Wiper and Oiler Felt

Strips of the correct density felt (made in Germany) that can be cut and packed into the holders: each strip is 150 mm long, 10 mm wide and 8.5 mm deep which is usually enough to make a set of bed-wiper for a lathe or other machine tool. The felt often be cut down to act as a wick of the type used to lubricate some types of plain bearings.


Raglan Little John Top Slide

The upper top slide casting for the Raglan Little John lathe. It is not uncommon for this slide to snap in two across the front edge of the T-slot. Machined complete ready to fit - though you have to transfer the gib-strip adjustment screws and, once assembled, drill and tap the holes to secure the feed-screw end plate.


Boxford -South Bend- Raglan T-slotted Cross Slide Casting

A high-quality, English-made casting to make a T-slotted cross slide for Boxford and South Bend "9-inch" lathes. It is also possible to make a T-slotted slide for other 4 to 5-inch centre height lathes - in the case of the Raglan "Little John" and "5-inch" it can only be used as a boring table as it is not possible to mount the top slide on it. Machined only on the top surface these castings are long-term stored and so very stable - but they do need cleaning before machining.

Can be used on all belt-drive models the A, B, C, AUD, BUD, CUD, ME10, CSB and those T and TUD non-screwcutting lathes fitted with backgear - but not the VSL which had hardened backgears. PLEASE NOTE: this is a 14.5-degree gear, not the later 20-degree.


Boxford VSL Boxford Lathe Vari-speed belt

Boxford VSL Boxford Lathe Vari-speed belt. Unfortunately, the exact belt is no longer available but one close can be supplied. In order to obtain the whole speed range, this will need 1/4" (6mm) packing piece between cross-shaft and hangers to increase the distance to the motor. However, this is not essential as only a little of the slowest speed will be lost if the belt is fitted "as-is". Sent insured by Royal Mail Special Delivery.




Fobco 7/8 and 10/8 Quill-return Spring - maker's original.

Quill-return spring for Fobco 7-Eight and 10-Eight models - the maker's original specification, UK-made part. Not to be confused with the thiner, fewer-coil and inferior type sometimes advertised on ebay.   The spring is 0.75 inches deep (19 mm) by 2.45 inches (62 mm) in diameter over the coils.

Round drive belt for the small but popular Naerok, NuTools, Warco, Seeley and Multico branded bandsaws. This is the very best quality, Swiss-made Polycord.
We have determined that the Naerok and NuTools versions had a belt made from 7 mm diameter material in the following lengths: 650, 660, 670 and 680 mm. However, it's important to check the length you need carefully and tick the right box.

Please take care to measure the belt and select the appropriate length below.


Toyo-ML1 Lathe Drive Belts

Set of 3 Toyo ML1 (ML-1) Lathe Belts made from round 5 mm diameter Swiss "Polycord. There is confusion as to what length these belts need to be - and several differences have been found. Hence. the solution is to make up your own using 1 metre of Poloycord. This is supplied complete with instructions about measuring and joining.


Myford ML7 Lathe Drive Belts

1) Countershaft to headstock belt. The best belt for this application is the NuT-Link Type with metal pins. Link belts help to reduce the vibration normally passed from a single-phase motor to the lathe
2) Countershaft to headstock spindle. here, the metal-pin T-link belt on an Ml7 can be rather too stiff and using the "Power Twist" type is recommended.
3) Select your required belt - motor to countershaft or countershaft to headstock - below:


Raglan Little John Lathe Drive Belt

The correct variable-speed drive belt for the Little John Mk.1 and Mk.2 Models. These belts are high-quality, industrial-grade belts made in Europe.   An installation tip: The manual suggests swivelling the layshaft housing about bolt 'D'. However, a better solution is to remove the grub screw (at the rear) securing the shaft to the housing; the housing can then be slid off the layshaft allowing it to move further, thus giving enough clearance to remove & refit the belt.


Boxford Lathe Tumble Reverse Gear - Early Models 14.5-degree pressure angle

Boxford lathe Tumble Reverse Gear Early Models
This gear is for all Models prior to Serial Serial No. 11-13513 - the introduction of the Mk.2 Models that have a single lever on top of the headstock to engage the backgears. 32 teeth and a 14.5-degree pressure angle. Made in the correct grade of cast iron - we have sold these gears for over 30 years.

Myford ML8 Drive Belt

For the Myford ML8 lathe the new, improved metal-pin T-link belting is ideal. It's a sectional belt so no dismantling is needed to fit it. For lathes on the maker's stand 1.2 metres is the length needed. If mounted on a home-made bench with a thick wooden top, 1.3 metres is usually sufficient. The width required is 1/2" (13 mm) = an "A" section.


Emco Umimat 3 Drive belts

After some difficulty obtaining reliable and correctly-made supplies of Emco Unimat belts we have decided to offer instead the special Swiss-made drive belt we sell for light industrial applications. It's widely used on all sorts of drives and we now sell lots for watch and clockmaker's lathes - and of course various kinds of Unimat. It's long-lasting and very reliable.


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:


Hobbymat MD65, Prazimat MD300, Saupe & Sohn, Hobby 120 Sliven and Proxxon version of the Hobbymat Lathe Rotating Tailstock Centre (Live Centre)

Rotating tailstock centre (also called a "live centre") with the correct fitting for the Hobbymat MD65, Prazimat MD300, Saupe & Sohn, Hobby 120 Sliven and Proxxon version of the lathe. This is a special, compact centre with a No.1 Morse taper arbor that gives the best possible tool clearance on small jobs,


Toyo, Proxxon, Record ML360 Drive Belts

Unfortunately, these belts are now very difficult to obtain with minimum orders and expensive with post from the EU.  As an alternative, I suggest using a 1.1 metre length of 7 mm Polycord round belting. It's a special Swiss-made machine-tool drive type and very effective and can be joined into the lengths needed for a Toyo ML360. It can be ordered here with full joining instructions provided..




Myford Super 7 and ML7R Drive Belts Z-section T-Link

Motor to countershaft and countershaft to headstock belts of the NuT-Link Type in a Z-Section.  Link belts help to reduce the vibration normally passed from a single-phase motor to the lathe - and was a fitting often used by Myford Service engineers to "quieten" a noisy machine. On the Super 7 and ML7R, the T-link belt is highly effective on the drive from motor to countershaft.


Myford Super 7 and ML7R Drive Belts - PowerTwist

The only PowerTwist belt needed on the Super 7 and ML7R is an "A" section 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 "Z" section T-Link belt as available here.


Boxford & South Bend Backgear Shaft

Boxford & South Bend Backgear 24-tooth Shaft. We can supply - on a service-exchange basis - a backgear shaft fitted with a new steel gear.

Later gears are 21 degrees and in this case the shaft is stamped "21" - though it's sometimes hard to see. We can supply both types.
Pack your broken gear carefully and we can send you a service-exchange item of the type that matches yours. Send to:
