  • Installed Link Belt on my Shaper

    Got to Rocklers today and picked up a pre-packaged four foot section of link belt. Installed it on my 1930's Power King Shaper that had a really bad vibration problem. Tools left on the table would end up on the floor. To be fair, the old belt was in poor condition. After installing the link belt,I'd have to say 80% of the vibration is gone.
    The belt cost $6.24 per foot in the store, $5.99 at there web site.
    I had enough left over to replace the small, upper, belt on my Band Saw.
    I don't think I'll get any more from my local Rockler's due to the price, but I'll sure look on the 'net for a better price and replace the lower belt on my Band Saw and the belt on my table saw. Then, maybe the drill press and my sanders.
