I am planning to replace the V-belt in my Craftsman 10' contractor
style tablesaw (model# 315.228390) with a link-belt. But there are
different sizes of link-belt, like 1/2" and 3/8". How can I tell
which size of link-belt I should use for this tablesaw? The size of
the top side of the current V-belt is 1/2". Does this mean that I
should get a 1/2" link-belt?
Thanks in advance for any info.

I just discovered another advantage of link belts. I had a link belt on
my old contractor saw and needed a longer belt for my new (antique) Delta.
All I had to do was buy another foot of link belt and add it in :-).

Agreed. There is a kit that includes the belt and two machined pulleys.
The pulleys are the same size, which is correct for a 3450rpm motor. Ny
antique needed a 5" and a 3" for a 1450rpm motor so I bought machined and
balanced ones from Grainger. Sure are an improvement over cast pot metal :-).
