Topic tags/keywords: dp300 belt

Has anyone ever had any dealings with a company called Renovo. They claim to Reverse engineer and sell parts for Delta machines that are no longer available. I have a Delta DP300 drill press I am trying to find a new belt for. I am being careful as I got ripped of trying to buy the belt from another company.

Some parts are available here – http://www.ereplacementparts.com/delta-dp300-type-drill-press-parts-c-3275_3279_12673.html – But not the belt. What kind of belt is it, a standard V belt or one of those narrow serpentine belts? If it’s a V belt just replace it with a link belt from HF. If it’s the other kind try McMaster Carr. The # on the belt pictured @ Ereplacement.com is K-32.5 p/n 1343782

This old post my give you some insight – http://www.polytechforum.com/metalworking/v-belt-k-cross-section-359940-.htm -

That looks to be a standard type v-belt, so just run down to your local auto parts store and pick one up.. they can measure it for you and give you the right size. I don’t think I would want to use a link belt on a drill press with a multi-step pulley setup, but I guess that would be an option as well.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: If the K32.5 marking is correct, then it IS a standard V-belt.. the “K” indicates the profile (8mm wide, 5mm thick and 40 degree side angle) and 32 is the length. Should be stocked at any auto parts or hardware store that carries belts, or even places like tractor supply.

Brad – in the last machine shop I worked all the machines had link belts. Makes stocking easier.

I have a link belt on my DP and it works just fine.

Thanks to all, I might just give the link belt idea a try.
