Good morning. Need some guidence to locate a source for a timing belt for a Jet JWSS-10LFR Left Tilting 10” SuperSaw.

The belt is part of the mechanics in raising and lowering the saw blade. I called Jet and the part is discontinued. The CSR offered some suggestions but they did not pan out.

I looked at the manual ( and it has the part listed as such: 993101 – Timing Belt – 369-3GT-10MM

It’s pretty Greek to me. If you have any sourcing or other suggestions please let me know. The saw is pretty useless without being able to raise and lower the blade.

Many thanks in advance.

with the right part number you might be able to get the same thing a lot cheaper at an auto parts store.

These guys say they have it, but that it is special order so ask them to ask Jet if there are any left.

If not, you need to decipher your belt. The info is in here:

3GT is the type of belt.
10mm is the width – check your broken one and it should be close to .4” wide if this is correct.
The 369 is probably length but you need to determine how. It could be 36.9”, 369mm, probably not 36.9 miles etc.

When you’ve got the length figured out correctly you just hit google and start emailing one belt seller after another.
Belt Palace sells belts, but I don’t know if they sell 3GT style.

If the length is in mm, and you have any wiggle-room for adjusting, then a 370 might work as well as a 369. And if any of those makers above don’t sell it, one or more might make custom length belts for you.

Look carefully at the old belt. These belts are all purchased from belt manufacturers, and 99% of them are a stock item. If you see any numbers at all on the belt, you may be able to search that and find the factory equivalent.

Edit: justjoe posted the pertinent info while I was typing. Belt Palace is a great place for these, or an industrial supply like Graingers.

If you can find the numbers on the belt, and hopefully a manufacturers name, then an auto parts house
might be able to either sell you the same belt or use a cross reference chart to get an identical one from
another manufacturer.

Is that a “V” belt? or a “toothed” belt? Any chance one of those link belts would work?

NAPA Auto Parts is great at cross referencing belts, they had belts for my Grizzly gunsmithing lathe in stock.
