« Part 3: Finishing Miter Slot clean up and looking at fence system Part 4 of My 1997 Delta Unisaw 36-815 Refurbishing series Part 5: Re-Assembly Complete with New Bearings / Belts »

Removed the 6205 and 6203 from the motor shaft. Laying everything side by side to show what 20 year old bearings and belts (I can only assume these are OEM parts) look like besides new. So I have 3 new Jason Industrial UniMatch belts, a 6205 and 6203 motor shaft, then 2 more 6203’s for the yoke. May start installing tonite or weekend. I purchased them via Amazon due to the “PRIME” member 2 day shipping and Amazon credit card :)

Ideally, you want to buy belts in a matched set, as the lengths can vary quite a bit.

Hmm… maybe I could of done better with the belts. Thought “unimatch” meant they were identical. Gerry… are you saying I could of bought 3 belts as a matched set instead of 3 single belts?

I’ll keep that in mind for my next 2 or 3 belt machine, Gerry. My work neighbor commercial woodshop suggested the unimatch’s from Jason Industrial as he swears by them for his machines and history. Granted, he has 3phase beasts….
