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.

Click in the box below to select the length needed (the price shown below is for a belt 1.2 metres long).


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.


Hollow Round Belt Connector

Mushroom connectors for hollow round plastic drive belts. Click the down arrow in the size box to choose the correct one for your belt: The size of the connector refers to the diameter of the belt material - not the size of the hole in the belt.  Connectors for belts of the following diameters are available: 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm are available.


Raglan "Little John" Lathe variable-speed 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.


Naerok, NuTools, Warco, Seeley and Multico Bandsaw Drive belt

Round drive belt for the small but popular Naerok, NuTools, Warco, Seeley and Multico branded bandsaws.
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.


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 "5-inch" Lathe Vari-speed drive belt

The correct variable-speed drive belt for the Raglan "5-inch Lathe" These belts are high-quality, industrial-grade belts made in Europe. 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.


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.

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.


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..
