    Delta Table Saw question

    Bought a used Delta table saw 10" Contrator model that had a bad motor.
    Purchased a 1 1/2hp 220v motor and installed it, working well but the belt that was on it will no longer fit.
    Old belt was about 1/2" wide with V-belt cogs
    I checked with Home Depot, Lowes, and two local auto parts stores and nobody carries belts for saws. The ones they sell are a bit narrower. So i bought one from the auto parts store and put it on for now and seems to work fine but my question is : Anybody know of a online source that sells equipment belts with the V-Belt cogs in 1/2 wide ?
    My understanding is the traction part of a belt comes from the sides and that the belt i have may work fine but in the long run it would be better to get the wider belt put on it............thanks for the advice or help in advance......Dan

    PS -started it for the first time today.........WOW does this thing have power.........

    Check out the red link belts and see if that will work for you. Do both of your pulleys match?

    Like Dale said, look into the link belt system. I put one on my Delta contractors saw (1 1/2hp 120/240VAC motor) and have been very pleased with it. Vibration is greatly reduced with the machined pulleys and the belt is ease to install/adjust.
