    Default Belt swap

    I have First mill which is a Bridgeport clone. The variable-speed belt is looking rather haggard and I'd like to replace it. I've looked online and replacement belt prices are steep enough but the cost ends up being doubled with shipping and import duty (I'm in Canada). Is there and reason why a snowmobile belt would not work if I could find the right size?
    Thanks.

    Snowmobile belts see severe service, so I don't see why a properly sized belt won't work.

    Please report back!

    For the Variable Speed Belt a Goodyear/equivalent #2426V343 (1.5x35x26 deg) belt will work, for the timing Uniroyal 30864x1-1/8
