The twist link belt is a V=belt replacement. It will not work with the ribbed pullies. A V-belt grips and powers through the side of the belt while the ribbed or serpentine belt pulls through the ribbed side or inside of the belt. Change the sheaves (pullies) and it should work. I don’t think you will gain much on your band saw by doing this but that is just what I think and not worth much more than that. In my opinion it wouldn’t be worth the cost to do this.
