My father-in-law's little milling machine (Dore-Westbury?) has shed its
drive belt. This is round section, 48" circumference and 1/4" diameter
and appears to be made from rubberized canvas. Anyone have any
suggestions for a stockist or supplier?
There is a polyurethane(?) round belt which is cheaper than leather that I
saw at Harrogate. Can't remember who supplies it though. Benefit is that
you buy it as a length and join it with a hot knife, so no clunk per rev as
the metal fastener goes over the pulley!
Thanks to all who replied - it seems likely that the belt in question
was a Cordex type, made by Dawsons. Dawsons no longer do a 6mm dia belt
and have scrapped their 6mm moulds! The nearest size available is 8mm
in batches of 36 at about a tenner a belt...
I feel a new set of pulleys and V or Polygrip belts coming on, myself.
