Recently I was planning some 4/4 walnut and cherry to make a box. I got greedy and was gang feeding the 10 inch wide by 14in long boards thru the planer and the cutter head slowed down but the motor kept up the rpms and then everything stopped except the motor. I melted the drive belt! To make a long story short, I called every Porter Cable Delta place to see if I could get a new drive belt. Absolutly no luck, was told at the last place that the belt was discontinued. Nooo! Fortunately the word Bando and a number was printed on the belt. It looked like the serpentine belt on the car so I called my mechanic friend and he said that Bando is a very common belt maker. He gave me the number at Bando and I called, talked to a John Gelb and was told that that particular belt is available. He gave me a local distributor and I should have the belt in a week or so. For a brief moment during this ordeal I thought I would have another planer boat anchor. For those interested www.bandousa.com 800-829-6612
