Where are folks in the US sourcing belts right now? I used to buy from someone on eBay with the words "vintage electronics" in their moniker. I don't see them today.
They're in Colorado, and they are the best belts I have found.
I bought one belt several weeks ago from an e-bay seller listing the correct width belt aand such in his add....they were going for $8.00. They are too thick and too tight.
I also bought a belt from an Ebay seller, a PRB brand belt. It was also advertised as having the correct width, etcetera selling for $8.00. Maybe the same one you bought.
I had to return it because it was too tight. Not as elastic as the original belt. The motor struggled to start the table.
My belt dimensions are: Inside Circumference: 23.6”, Width: 0.135”, Thickness: 0.030”.
What I’ve found so far seems grim.
From Russell Industries there are:
The one AB Tech sells is:
The EVG brand part number is: 1407-212 I.C. = 22.423”, Width = 0.188, Thickness: 0.031” but is too short and too wide.
A better fit would be:
The EVG brand part number is: 1407-533 I.C. = 23.6”, Width = 0.185, Thickness = 0.033”, but still too wide. I don’t know where to get this one in small quantities anyway.
The PRB brand part number is: FRY23.6 but only has in inside circumference of 23.3 inches and it’s also made from a stiffer material. But it has the correct width and thickness. I think this is the one I had to return.
So the bottom line question is; where do we get the correct AR Turntable replacement belt in 2010?
