The belt on my lathe broke Sunday--probably because I was trying to machine a little too aggressively on a very big piece of Delrin. I am making a caster set for a customer with the Meade Giant Field Tripod--and trust me, "Giant" isn't exaggeration.

I ordered up some replacement belts from Sherline--but Tuesday I went down to the local hardware store, and discovered that the Eureka series 1100 vacuum clean belts ($2.64 for two of them) were close enough in dimensions to the Sherline belts that I was able to resume work.
