    The gogged V-belt is also capable of transmitting higher horsepower and runs with more tension then a standard V belt. The smallest sheave diameter for an AX

      The gogged V-belt is also capable of transmitting higher horsepower and runs with more tension then a standard V belt. The smallest sheave diameter for an AX belt is 2.2" pitch diameter and for a BX it's 4.0" PD.

      Sherline uses a toothed belt running in a pulley that has no teeth.  I've never had any problem with the belt slipping or stalling during normal lathe or milling operations with this setup.  They do not invert the belt, since the belt has sloped sides, and the pulley has a matching slope.  In practice, it is like a V-belt, but the teeth allow it to wrap around a smaller diameter pulley.


      However that is not a flat belt, it is a cogged V belt, similar to the AX, BX, CX, etc. series.
