Get a link belt. HF has them. You add or take out links to get the right belt length; then install on the lathe and join the ends of the belt together. The arbor is supported on both ends and to use a standard type of belt, requires taking the lathe apart; link belts eliminate this. Link belts run more smoothly than the vee type belt.
