Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw question belt pulley table saw

I have a 10in rockwell table saw I bought on craigslist. The belt was worn out and finally broke so I need to replace it. The thing is it seems to be a somewhat uncommon size and I haven’t been able to find it online (Its around 11 1/2” circumference). I tried to use a link belt, but it is the wrong kind of set-up. Is there any website anyone knows about where I could buy a new drive belt or some type of local store? Or should I just try to replace the gears with pulleys?

Here is a picture of the saw

Please explain, I don’t have a Rockwell TS so I don’t know how the setup won’t accept a Link belt.
I put a Link belt on my Craftsman over 35 years ago, decreased noise/vibration, and it’s still going strong.

For now…..go out and buy a DirtDevil drive belt. About like most sweeper drive belts that run the spinning floor brush.

Might have to stretch it a bit.

oldnovice-
It uses gears and a different kind of belt than the link belt- I couldn’t get it to work, but if you know how I could that would be great

If the goes that toothed pulley it’s called a timing belt. www.mcmaster.com stocks some. You did save old belt because you will need to measure the tooth spacing. You could also go to an industrial supply that sells bearings and pulleys as they typically carry belts.

It’d be good to know thet actual model number of your saw, but I did stumble into this belt… 11-3/8” diameter x 1”, 59T…think it’ll work?

It’s really not feasible to change the pulley systems on that saw to accommodate a link belt…the motor shaft is the drive gear.

you could try http://www.applied.com/. This is where I got my belt for my Delta saw. I could not find one anywhere. I got belt for other things that were nowhere to be found. Worst case scenario they will make the belt for you.
I was in their store one day and they had a full warehouse of belts. They should be able to help you out.
Good luck.

This is the right belt. Thank you so much! The model # of the table saw was actually 34-695, but the part number is different for some reason.
