Default Drive belts

Hi,

Does anyone know of a supplier that will make a flat drive belt to my specified length?

I live in Oz but I can always order one from overseas.

If you disclose the length you require and width, I am sure someone will know where there is one.
Philex will manufacture if you require a few thousand.

Thanks for that.

I am building my own setup and I will need one at a customer length.

Someone also has suggested that I might be able to use fishing line?

What is your length?

By googleing turntable belts australia and tape deck belts australia, I found many options.

belts are made in increments, and while not as common as they were 20 years ago, there are still places that sell many sizes.

Thanks for that.

I will need a belt that is approximately 1200mm long. It needs to go around the platter and the separate motor drive spindle.

I expect i will need to get this made especially.

Why would you not simply buy a readily available belt ?
Then shift the Motor the 1 or 2 mm required to fit it ??

I would be happy to buy a ready made belt of approximately 1200mm long but I don't know where I can buy one from.

Any suggestions?

Cut one from a big inner tube?
Find the sort of electronic parts dealer that caters to radio and TV repairmen. If any of those still exist. Vancouver's Main Electronics is now closing. Electronic parts for consumer electronic equipment
