When I was given the saw, it had a sewing machine belt which was to narrow. On line, I found a man in Illinois that supplies leather belts any width required. The new belt is purchased by the foot, I measured the old belt, added 6" or so. If your belt is not dried out or cracked, you simply look for the splice, remove the staple and cut to length. As you break in a new belt, it stretches and. You have to repeatedly adjust the size. A flaw in the design is that their is no tensioning pulley, so belt length has to be maintained by adjusting the length.
