Hey, it's a drill of some sorts! Anyway, is there any source for the round, endless belts that are used to drive the drilling head?

I have a bunch of different lengths which I had intended for a different project. Got them cheap.
What size you need? If I have it its yours for postage.
What I have are the old woven ones..... pretty much like I recall seeing.
My dentist had an old mechanical drill in the corner for people with soft teeth. Glad I never had the "pleasure" of being drilled on with it....

What size do you need..... diameter and lenght... I have a whole box full made by Ritter Co as I recall.... if they are not right try Habasit, they are the green rubber ones made in Switzerland that are really good.

Thanks for the replies so far. The machine has a plate that says, "Use M-21-118 belt". If that tells us something in some standard system great, otherwise I'll measure it as best as I can.

Don't some of those use steel spring belts?
Another approach might be to use fuseable
plastic round belting from McMaster Carr.

The Emsco I had used an endless cloth belt. Like a boot bootlace.

What I have are endless cloth, Ritter, Emesco, parkell, and some no-name.
Generally about 0.1" or 0.125" + - in diameter.
There are several lengths, some duplicated. They are given as 9'1", 9'2", 10'2", 10' 8 1/2", and the Ritter is a No 14, given as "4'11 1/4" double".
If you can use any of them, let me know. I don't think I have any use for them.
I think your "118" means 9'10", based on some of the codes on the boxes I have, but am not certain.

It looks like the Emsco I have takes a 10' 6" long cloth belt, about 0.082" diameter.
Anybody got an extra in that size?

Sorry for the delay, I finally got to measure the belt I need as the machine is at a friend's house. It is a string-like material, about .10" diameter and indeed is 118" long.

I dunno how much if any adjustment room is available..... if you can use one 4" longer (10'2"), its yours.... let me know.
I assume one significantly shorter wouldn't work.

Thanks, J, it looks like the longer belt will just work at the tail end of the adjustment. I'll email you.

Belt was sent Saturday, you should get it soon, or have it now.....
