Yesterday, I bought a segmented belt for my Powermatic Artisan saw. WOW,
does that make a difference. Gone is the rattle and vibration that I have
cursed about since I bought the thing. Definitely a good purchase. Thanks
to all who have suggested this in the past. If anyone would like a 4 inch
piece of belt let me know.
I've added segmented belts to my Unisaw, jointer and drillpress and I
have about 3" left over. Now if you send me your 4" and if I can get
others to send me the pieces that they have left I may be able to get
enough to change the belt on my band saw.
Ted, was it difficult at all to put the new belts on the Unisaw? I have
a stock Uni, but wonder how much of a difference the better belts
make??? And I also have a Delta drillpress, is there a difference
Then count me in. I've got about 4 feet I'll send you. I put mine on a week
ago and I haven't seen a lick of improvement! :-( I had to change pulleys
and all. I was running a flat belt. I'm seriously considering putting it
back on. The only major difference I can see is the saw stops a little
"Cartoons don't have any deep meaning.
They're just stupid drawings that give you a cheap laugh."
I've got about a foot left over from my belt replacement on an old home
build (heavy duty) bench grinder (two grinding wheels and a 1/2" chuck).
Seems to run smoother and quieter with NO belt slippage.
