Oliver 159 lathe

Been looking for a decent lathe for awhile now, but in my area they always seem overpriced. Picked this guy up the other day for $200. Had to completely disassemble it to get it into my basement shop. Still working on cleaning it up and getting it back together. Also need to find a new belt for it. Any recommendations to source a belt for this machine?Attachment 328562Name:  20171208_194420.jpg

Unless it's a flat belt you should be able to get a belt at any auto supply shop.

It's a wide v belt, similar to a snowmobile belt because it has a Reeves style variable speed pulley setup.

search engines turn up dozens of reeves belt sources. here's one specific - doesn't state model number - but you could call them.

Do you still have the old belt? If so look for a bearing supply house in your area and take the old belt with you, they ought to be able to fix you up
