  • Can you use a Power Twist Link Belt on a 3650?

    My father bought me a power Twist Link belt to use on my 3650 but it is designed for a V belt not a flat belt. Can I still use it on this table saw?
    Thanks for your help.

    No, not on the 3650 but you can use it on a band saw if you have one. Actually, the serpentine belt on the 3650 is as good as the link belts and alot less expensive.

      To make the link belt work, you'd have to change the pulleys, but there's no need as Dave pointed out.

        Another vote for keeping the original belt on the 3650. That belt is very flexible, fits in the special pulley grooves, and does not develop the problems of a regular v-belt that cause vibration. And, as also noted, you would need to install different pulleys. Totally unnecessary and would not improve performance.
