so picked up my bandsaw today unfortunately the drive belt snapped on demo so i'm now in need of the motor drive belt as well as the blade guide.
the blade guide has now been ordered however apparently there 2 different types of belts anyone know which one i need please?
the original manual lists part 7233190017 but there's 2 types.
Measure the centre to centre distance between the motor and drive pulleys in the middle of the adjustment range, double it. Then take half the circumference of the drive pulley and motor pulley (Pi times diameter divided by 2) and add them to the distance measurements. That's the length of belt you need. If you can remove the pulley from either pulley take it with you so they can get the correct belt width to the places sunnybob mentioned.
If I recall the last belt I replaced was a pale coloured urethane v ribbed belt. The replacement was a black belt which fitted well, so imagine no difference in size between the two you mentioned.
Thought I got it from Miles Tool & Machinery but don't see on their site any more, was about 7/8 quid.
PS- I'll go and measure mine if you can wait, 40 mins or so.
