Interesting, where did you purchase it from? I looked on rockler and amazon but didn't see any smaller ones.

Try Ebay, there are lots of listings for 3/8", that is what I use on my metal lathe.

Yes, they make a 3/8 inch wide link belt and they sell them at McMaster/Carr. I also use this size on my 6 inch Atlas.

Thanks for all the recommendations guys. I picked up a 3/8th belt from eBay. Will report back once it arrives and I install it.

Got the v belt installed and boy what a difference! Machine is extremely quiet now and there is almost no vibration. This makes a world of a difference. Not sure how these work on other tools but I would suggest you give it a try if you're on the fence.

I tend to be very skeptical of anything I buy so I set low expectations. I am pleasantly surprised with how well this works.

Now if I can find something to drill...
