My wife being an ardent knitter gets her wool in long skeins that are a pain in the butt to rewind into a ball. I thought I should have a go at making a yarn ball winder. I have seen several on this site (My thanks to Medzehr for responding to my inquiries) and it looks like a pretty cool project. My big question is …what do you use for a drive belt? They look like O rings , but where do you get a10 -12” O ring?
Thanks
Mark

You might look at vaccuum cleaner belts also.

For example…

-- I intended to be a woodworker, but turned into a tool and lumber collector.
