I have a Craftsman floor mounted drill press that needs a new drive belt. Alas, I don't have the model #.

This machine has 8 speeds and one belt. It's a silly looking little belt, 3/16" X 40-something ". Anyone have anything like this to give me a model #???

PART #91745 OR 1745 3/16" WIDE BY 45" LONG.

Gates 3V450 Nope, that one is 3/8" still looking.............

Okie-dokie, Gates 2L460 is only 1/4, but is 45.9 long. Reportedly works fine.

Also, sears has a replacement, but it is labeled as a 'timer knob'. I trust Sears as far as I can throw one of their stores.

You might try looking for metric belts. 3/16 is awful close to 5mm, maybe that's what it started out as.

something like a 5m by 1140 or so...

If you take it to a belt supplier thay should be able to ID and size one for you.

I have found that having some of this on hand, is real handy.

Accu-link or Powertwist drive belts :
There are at least two brands currently on the market:
PowerTwist belts, manufactured by Fenner Drives, are red.
Accu-Link belts, from Jason Industrial, are green. Posted Image

Good stuff on a table saw. Pricey though.

Yes LD, a touch on the spendy side, but seeing as I have had the same Acculink belt running on my tablesaw for nearly a decade , I think it is money well spent :-)

The best thing on a table saw, it doesn't take a set and run rough/vibrate.
