Hi I am new to woodturning and would really appreciate some help/advice. I have been given a Tyme Cub lathe which seems to be in good condition except that it doesnt have a drive belt. I have the old snapped one and I think it is a poly v belt? Having tried Googling I am struggling to find a supplier. So my first question is does anyone out there know where I can buy one? My next question is how do I fit it? It looks as though I need to remove the pulley spindle on the headstock, is this correct and how do I do it? Thanks in advance and I'm sure I'll have other queries as I get into it.:smile:

I'm pretty new here too but I'll be the first to welcome you to the forum. Sorry I don't have any supplier ideas for you but for the belt you could always go to rocklers or woodcraft and buy a link belt. Its a better belt and fully adjustable size too.
