    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.
