Have a belt/disc combo center that has a broken drive belt.   14" long, toothed belt, to be exact.   Model No. 113.226423.     Did a short Google-Fu Search.......anywhere from $1 per inch to $44 for ONE belt.   Yikes! 

 

I only spent MAYBE $15 on the machine at a garage sale.   A belt that costs more than the machine?    heck, Sears Parts wanted $24 for one...IF they have one in stock.    Lately i don't trust Sears any further than I can throw the store.   Looking for  other options right now.....  Old belt blew apart at the seam.    I might go and check out sweeper belts today and see what they have.    

 

Let you know what I find out.    The machine comes in handy on curved items.....

Ok, inorder to get this dang thing up and running until a regular belt can be ordered,  I used a Vacumn Cleaner belt.....Eureka*U.  Came in a 2-pack for $5.   Hardest part was getting the belt stretched to go over the disc platten.   ( Set screw to remove the platten it stripped out) Once I got the smooth rubber belt started onto the drive wheels, belt went right on, and still tight enough to drive the sander.

 

Need to order a new guard piece for around the disc.   Not a biggie,.  Test run.......belts stayed put.    new rubber oneand the 4x36 sanding belt.    It also runs a LOT quieter than before.   At least I now have a spare it case the first breaks.   Thanks for the info on the new belts. 

 

BTW:  Belts came from Lowes.  Autozone could not find any in their stock.
