Son of a salamander… never seen one of those and they are not in any of the Delta/Rockwell catalogs that I can find! Anyway, I don’t believe that is a standard V-belt… it’s more of a small serpentine type from the looks of it. It is a small little thing, and I doubt you will find it at any auto parts store – but Renovo says they still have them and they are only about $8.

So everyone knows what the machine looks like, including a good shot of the underside showing the motor and belt, here is a good photo entry of one over at the vintage machinery site: 37-000 Compactool

And here is a shot of the belt from Renovo:

At least that explains why I couldn’t cross reference it – my list is only for Delta/Rockwell V-belts and pulleys :(

For your knives – manual states it takes the #37-026 set, which is pretty common across most of their 4” jointers. Those are 4-1/8” long by 5/8” wide, 3/32” thick – but they don’t have to be exact. A 4”x5/8” knife will work just fine, such as the Freud C310 set.
