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.........
