Likewise to Rogers message. . Thanks Roger for the beltsforless info . I still have the original belt on mine and it has done a ton of turning and it still looks almost like new but wouldn't hurt to have a spare belt on hand just in case . I will check out the site you provided and I will also slip the belt off my lathe when I get a chance and take it to my local NAPA auto parts store and compare prices and quality before ordering a spare from either source.
