> Where the heck do you get the proper width belts for the 6" lathe. Iam currently using 3/8" (3L series) belts which are too wide. I have
looked in Granger and McMaster-Carr and not even they carry them. I am
about ready to try and make up some round leather belts from 5/16"
stock. I did not see belts listed in the Clausing spare parts or teh
Blue Ridge web site, etc.. so I'm not sure where to look.
I recently replaced the belts on my 6" Atlas (101.21400) with a 3L210
(motor to countershaft) and a 3L360 (countershaft to headstock pulley)
Both seem to work fine with no noticeable overhang. My lathe dates
back to the early 60's with the original pulleys. Can't imagine why the
3/8" belts don't fit.
