    Trying to source a replacement drive belt. Two pulleys 18mm and 29mm diam, 8.64 cm between centres.Pulleys each have 4 grooves so looking for a ribbed belt (?). Wrapped a piece of paper round the two pulleys to simulate belt and total outside length looks like 24.8 cm. Anyone any ideas as to where I can get a belt like this?
    TIA

    Sander is a Chinese import which I bought in France quite a while ago. Gave drivebeltshop.co.uk the details and they came up trumps so thanks for the lead. Have ordered two. Shop is Solent Tools in Southampton.Will post results when I receive the belt.

    If they don't have a belt, I would be very surprised, very good firm.

    Thanks for the feedback.:)

    I’ve used Solent Tools myself and recommended them on the forum previousely

    Hadn’t seen this thread or I may have beaten Kiab to the lead ...... doubt it though :(

    Similiar situation to you, I needed a drive belt for a Titan planner and as we know with these own brand tools - no spares available (is the general rule)

    Solent Tools came up trumps though and like you, I ordered 2

    Very helpful company, good result

    I’ve got an old fashioned tool shop right near me that still carries out tool repairs on site, in their own workshop

    Been in there a few times for various spares for branded items, including brushes. Yep brushes it seems can always be matched up, one of the easier parts to obtain
