saw rig 001.jpg

This is the current project in my friend's shop, $50.00 Craigs List saw rig, a donated small utility trailer, and my Briggs ZZ. The Briggs already had the flat belt pulley, the trailer was shortened, and the mount for the Briggs fabricated in these pictures. The final pulley alignment and adjustments have to be made and we need to find belting. The saw shaft bearings are good and the blade looks worse than it is. Hope to put it to work soon. anyone know of good sources of belting/lacing?

May check with a leather shop in the area, if you have one.

One other thought, check with any area machine shops to see where they buy their belts, a lot of the older lathes used flat belts and many are still in use at mom and pop machine shops.

Man I bet I could loose more fingers on that rig. When you go pick up the belt, grab a first aid kit too!
