John, another option for the future is to use a link belt. This has the advantage of not having a memory of the typical belts. You can find it many places but HF has the best price I have seen.

I use them on all my tools that need conventional V-type belts. not sure about the small belt driven power tools.

I have been thinking of replacing belts on my drill press, band saw, and table saw. Is the quality of the Harbor Freight belt equal to the belts from Rockler, Grizzley, etc? The HF belt is sure a LOT cheaper...

Yes the only difference I have seen is the color is green.
I have used both and they are no different in my opinion, all seem to run smooth and never have worn one out or frayed .

Herb
if your tool has a vibration and you install this belt and the vibration is gone you could very well have masked issues that needed attention...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Thanks John, I'll have to check the out. I need one of those little ribbed flat belts for a spindle sander. I don't think the link belt would replace it.

You are correct Charles; the link belt is only for replacing regular V belts.

Stick, the vibration can be caused by a belt that has dried out. Any time you change a belt is a great time to test any adjustments and be sure all the fasteners are tight. Last time I changed the blade on my table saw I found most of the fasteners had loosened. By checking I saved myself a LOT of trouble. A little ND Vibra-tite on the threads and they will not come loose like that again.
