I have a 16" drill press made in China.
It has no brand name on it, only a model No. HJ-16F.
I am pleased with the drill press but can find replacement v-belts.
One belt says O-550 the other O-530.
I have tried two local auto stores with no luck.
Can anyone tell me where I can purchase replacement belts in the USA (St.
Louis metro area).
Are you trying for those part numbers, or just something of the same
size and angle? Most parts counters have the tool to measure the length
of the belt and can match it up close enough to get you within the range
of adjustment on the machine.

Also, you might not find it at an auto supply store. If you have a rubber &
belt or industrial supply dealer locally try them. They usually have the
off-size belts or can get them. Some full-service tool stores can order
first try a higher end auto parts store.
then look in your yellow pages for a bearing supplier. they usually
also sell pullies and belts, and carry the industrial, non automotive
ones. and don't count on the chinese belt numbers to mean anything to
domestic supplier- walk into the store with the belt in your hand.
If you can determine the length and width yourself you might try
Grainger http://www.grainger.com Look under Motors & Power Transmission
=> Belts, they show 15 per page and have 43 pages. Probably have whatyou need.

NAPA Auto Parts has the largest selection of belts I've ever seen.
Even the conveyor guys go there. <g> Alternatively, move to a
linkbelt. I got the last 2 from Harbor Freight's Medford, OR store
a few years ago. Find your own. ;)

I always got my belts at the hardware store.......Not the "Borg" as
they're called on here The blue and the Orange Giants....
If you have a local hardware store or a tractor supply they usually
have a pretty good selection of belts that should work too.
I've heard good things about the link belts.....Haven't used one yet
