As I was cruising through HF the other evening, I noticed they carry link belts now. At $25 for 5’ ($20 after the 20% coupon), the price can’t be beat. I was wondering if any of you have had any experience with these. I’m not looking for the generic HF opinions, but ones regarding this product. I heard somewhere that these belts are US made, though I can’t confirm that myself. I’m wanting to do link belts on my machines to try them out, especially my bandsaw.

A quality (Gates) notched V belt really helped me out on my Grizzly table saw.

I run the HF link belt on my 14” Delta BS. Works fine. No complaints.

I saw the same belt at HF and was thinking about using it on my recently restored 1946 Duro Power shaper, but after all the work of cleaning it up, I don’t want to put an inferior product on it. I know that HF clones a great deal of items via China. I have had great success with my 2hp dust collector from HF. I will keep an eye on this post to see what turns up. Great question. Sorry I rally can’t help!
