1/2'' Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Put this link belt onto my table saw this morning – it took all of 5 minutes – and am amazed at the difference it made. The saw is now almost totally vibration free and is much quieter too. If your saw vibrates, you need this belt.

I totally agree. Best thing since sliced bread, or whatever it is.

Have them, use them and highly reccomend them for all belt driven machines.

Eventually I will put one on my table saw but will need to replace the pulleys with machined ones. Peachtree sells retrofit kits to do this.

Could these be used on a jointer?

They can be used on anything that takes a standard 1/2” V belt.

I put a HF link belt on my jointer (1930s vingtage machine) and it made a significant difference.

I have been using them on my band saw, lathe and jointer (all older machines) and they made a huge difference, highly recommend them.

They even made a 3/8” version for a bit. It actually cured the shakes in a 12” Craftsmen drill press I had. Great product. I did use the 1/2” version on a Dewalt hybrid table saw I used to have. Once installed you could instantly feel and hear the difference.

Appreciate the review. And all who use ones from HF, thnx also. I’ve been wondering if HF belts are worth it. They are a bit cheaper than Rockler, dollar wise

I use them on EVERYTHING … including two on my Woodmaster 718 and three on my Gizz 1023. I’ve heard criticisms about how they stretch & slip, but I’ve never experienced that to the best of my knowledge.

We had a 700 HP machine at work called an air classifying mill … it took 18 belts … a piece of trash got caught up in the sheaves & shredded most of the belts. We always bought “matched” sets of Browning belts, bet couldn’t get them fast enough … SO … we got a couple of spools of this stuff … made out own … worked like a charm. They were still on that machine when I retired.

Even if they did not cut the vibration(Which they do) the reduction in noise level is worth the cost.

another +1 for link belts, cheaper to replace as well, make sure you buy an extra foot for spare links

My old, very old, Craftsman table saw has had a power twist for over 25 years ... the same belt!

I suppose I just jinx ed the belt … we’ll see!

I also added turned pulleys as opposed to the cast ones and it was a totally new sawing experience!
