  • Replacement Belt for TS2424

    Hello, Can any one tell me where I can get a new belt for my TS2424. Mine is about 4 years old and is showing signs of wear. Thanks for the help.

    Although I would suggest you replace it with a 'link belt'

      Please correct me if I'm under the wrong impression. I've always thought that the only way a link belt would work was if you also replaced the stock pulleys.

        I may be wrong but I have never heard that or replaced my pulleys. I checked a few sites and none mention pulley replacement. Here is one of the pics I found, looks like stock pulleys

        Anyone had to change pulleys for table saw? I have only used link belts on a low power drill press

          No need to replace the pulleys when using link belt. The tune up sets come with pulleys that have been machined to a fine tollerance and are usually very true. Most decent table saws or other tools come with good pulleys. I have been adised that when using link belt on a drill press it is best to use a belt that has been on another machine and has been broke in a little. Most drill presses these days come with pretty painted pulleys and a new link belt tends to slip easier than a broke in belt. Maybe wbrooks can tell me it that is true or not.

            My 3650 uses a flat, grooved serpentine style belt such as is found on cars these days. Therefore a link belt or any v-belt will not work without installing new pulleys. I believe all Ridgid table saws use the flat belt. Use the info wbrooks provided to order a new belt from Ridgid.

              I assembled a TS-2424 and 3612, both have the flat serpentine style belts and multi-grooved pulleys. You cannot use the link belt without changing pulleys, there is nothing to keep the belt on the pulley (no shoulder). As said by others, standard pulleys (single v-groove)can run link belts with no problem. Some equipment may have somewhat poor quality stock pulleys however.

                G.W. I have not had a problem with slipping but I only have a 1/2 HP machine and have never used anything bigger than a 2" forstner bit.

                  I think some one is missing the point here, In order to use the link belt system you must have V-grove pulleys, The flat pulley that are on my TS2424 just wont work. I tryed calling Ridgid today but I was put on hold and at the time I just could not wait. I going to check with one of the local auto supply stores to see if they have a belt that is the same as the one on my saw. I'm hoping they will.

                  I did some checking, The company that make the belt for my TS2424 is called Bando www.bandoamerican.com it's called a Bando Rib-Ace You can do a search to see if there is a company in your state that carries there product. I've done this but at the time none were open. I sent and email to one and will call tomorrow to see if I can get it from them. This may be a way to get the belt and not pay shipping or have to wait. I'll let you know what I find out.

                    I stand corrected. My older Craftsman/Emmerson saw has v pulleys. I was not aware that Ridgid had changed them. Might want to check your local link belt dealer. The maker of link belt makes other styles and may make a serpentine style. If not then the pully change is necessary.

                    wbrooks, I don't know how important it is to use a used belt. Just what I had heard. I'm waiting on the belt for my drill press as it is a smaller size than the standard size that is carried by most of the woodworking stores.

                      I have found a source for the drive belt for the Ridgid TS-2424. First the belt is a Bando Rib-Ace 417 J. For those that livein the Hampton Roads area. You can order the belt from Norfolk Bearing & Supply the cost is $10.85+ Shipping. There phone # is 853-3691. I did check with Ridgid there cost is $22.97 with shipping to Hampton VA. But there are back ordered and I could expect a delay of 2 to 3 weeks. Just thought you would like to know.

                        Back in pre-historic times (which a few may remember), there was a fellow by the name of Jake Schnarre who was a moderator of this forum. Jake was a Rigid employee, unusually knowledgeable about Ridgid products and designs, and unusually helpful.

                        The issue of using link belts on the 2424 came up, and Jake gave a detailed and coherent explanation of why this was a VERY BAD idea. I don't know if the archives are searchable, but anyone who is interested might want to see if that thread can be recovered and reposted. It was, as a guess, about 3 or 4 years ago.
