I have a 207.2330 aluminum craftsman belt sander that I just rebuilt. Its from about 1952 and has 3 wheels. It takes a belt bigger than a 24 inch but smaller than a 30 inch from what I can tell. I was wondering if anyone had one and knew the exact belt size and also where you can get belts for it.
This is the side view.

The other side with the cover off where the belt goes.

can you run your tape measure around the drive and idler wheels to get a length? Make sure you have the idler set to the ‘loosest’ setting so you don’t get a belt too long.

Nice refurb!

Thanks for the complement. They painted the aluminum a silver color. I just cleaned it up and hand polished it with a silver polish pad. It really looks good. I checked it out and the give on the belt goes from 26 1/2 to 27 1/2 so I am thinking it would need a 27 inch belt. I did hear about a place locally that makes custom bandsaw blades and suposively bellts for sanders. But if there is a place out there that sell them online I would be interested in that as well. Over the last week I got a new sander as well. It is a tabletop mounted belt sander. It had been my FILs old one and my MIL gave it to me. I found a old motor he had to go with it and I put it on it as well. It was a 20s to 30s model delco motor for 120v. The stand was one my dad had that I saved from going to the scrappers. It was a homemade stand but a nicely made one of angle iron. It really works great. I really am glad to get it going since both my dad and FIL are gone. Here is a picture of it.
