Christmas Greetings to all.
Brand: Chicago
Model: I-17 12-speed drill press
Looking for replacement drive belts for this old drill press. Motor works great.
Harbor Freight has tried but I think I need some experienced advisors. Thoughts? Does anyone happen to have a manual? Maybe I could get part numbers from it.

Simpler to just buy an
Adjustable Link V-Belt.

There is also a 3/8" version.

The V Link belt is a good choice. If you're looking for a solid conventional belt, and you have an old one, you could use a seamstress's cloth measuring tape to measure the circumference and use that as a guide to what to buy. Stock belts are cheap and this should get you the right size. You could even measure around the pullys to get a length.
