I have a Craftsman Table saw (315.228310) and I think it’s time to replace the belt, considering it about falls off every time I turn the thing on. Now, the only place I can seem to find a belt is only Searspartsdirect.com (V-Belt PART NUMBER: 979901-001, $38.99) Here is the link:
whew. Huge link. Anyway, I’m always looking for ways to do things, if not cheap, then at least economically, and $40 for a belt seems like a bit much. My question is: is there another place that you would recommend for buying belts? I can’t seem to find anywhere else, and if I do, it just links back to sears parts direct.
One more thing: i’m no belt master or anything, but if I can find the height, width and outside length of the belt (I can’t, as the manual gives none of that info, but speaking hypothetically), wouldn’t an automotive belt work just fine? Now, if I have to, I’ll bite the bullet and buy the stupid belt from Sears :) I appreciate any advice you can offer.
