The Power Twist Plus Link Belt is a high-performance V-belt that reduces vibration on table saws, drill presses, and other power tools by as much as 35%. It replaces the standard 1/2" V-belt on most machines, and the length can be adjusted by removing links. Whereas traditional drive belts can stretch and become misshapen (creating vibration as they rotate), the Power Twist belt is made up of interlocking segments of polyurethane elastomer and multiple plies of polyester fabric that retain their original shape, thereby reducing vibration. What's more, you can easily add or subtract links to get optimal tension on almost any machine!


Features:
  • Replaces the standard 1/2" V-belt on most machines
  • Can be adjusted by removing links
  • High-performance V-belt reduces vibration
  • Sold by the foot
(1) 4 ft 1/2" Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt or (1) 1/2" Power Twist Plus Link V-Belt (sold by foot)

Should have installed long ago.
I bought 2 of the 48" belts and was able to configure 3 belts needed for my Delta Unisaw. It is SOOOO much quieter and smoother with these than my old belts which were still solid, but starting to show a strong memory for one spot. Knowing this, I would add these for new tools and replace the originals.

Replacement Drive Belt on Band Saw
I used this belt to replace the drive belt on a Craftsman 14" band saw. Worked very well. However, I turned the belt inside-out so that the "tails" of the replacement belt links faced away (outward) from the drive pinion.

Great addition to the tune-up
A noticably improvement on my 14" Delta bandsaw -- so I installed it on all of my belt driven machines. After a few years of regular use, none of them are showing any signs of wear or over-glazing like v-belts. They really soak up vibration, but it isn’t a cure-all for a machine that’s out of tune. You still need to go through the entire fine-tuning process with each machine to maximize the benefit.

What a difference
Put the belt on my table saw and turned it on. No vibration. Saw feels as steady as a 400 pound cast iron saw I used at a boatyard 40 years ago. I highly recommend this product.

So far it's great.
I purchased this belt just two weeks ago and used it to run the power steering pump on a 57 HP,1958 Ford tractor. It allowed me to install a belt without taking the entire front end and the loader off the tractor. It is working perfectly so far. Good product.

Bryce K on Dec 29, 2017
I've had one on my Delta contractors table saw for about 15yrs and it finally broke. I had also purchased machined, balanced pulleys at the same time. The combination helped with vibration. I figured it was time for a new belt with all the hours I'd put on it.

D2 on Sep 6, 2016
I've put these belts on my table saw, jointer, and bandsaw. I'm finally putting one on my drill press. These belts are expensive, but they make a huge difference in how much smoother your machines will run. I've used these for years and have never had one break. I think they are worth the money.

Rebuilding an small carrousel, it has a 16ft. 5 inch, 1/ 2 in wide v belt, will this belt work . mine has only 1 link.?
Robert S on Jan 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, this belt is a replacement for a standard V-belt that you would find on a bandsaw, jointer, or planer. It is only 1/2 inch wide.
How do I know what length to order?
Allan on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: hey allan, for my delta contractor saw it took just under 4 feet.. to measure for a different style machine you would take the existing belt off and measure it with a cloth tape ( the kind a tailor uses for altering garments) an extra set of hands helps holding things.. that will get you close enough to add or subtract links......tim
Can the width be trimmed, and how? This belt isn't sitting as deep in the pulley as the old 1/2" rubber belt, and it is rubbing on the inside of the head of my vintage Sears lathe. I have the belt in the right direction and the tabs are on the inside, so it is a very tight fit that is now proud of the pulley.
Aaron R on Apr 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Arron, if you wanted to reduce I would guess that you might be able to do so with a sander. I however would first check the width of your pulley. If you have a 3/8 pulley a 1/2 inch belt would make it stand proud of the pulley. The belts are also made in 3/8 inch widths. I would attempt to find one of those before I made any dangerous modifications. Hope this helps.
I'm confused by your picture of the link belt on a table saw. Fenner installation instructions (you'll have to locate their web site pdf file since I can't paste it here) say the belt must be installed with tabs trailing. The tabs are leading on your saw. ???
GEORGE K on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Disregard my previous answer. I think a better answer is to set up the belt as shown on Rockler's picture of the belt on the saw, shown online, which is placed correctly assuming the motor/pully is rotating clockwise as we look at that picture. Their picture of just the belt is shown positioned inside out. Also there should be arrows on the belt pointing in the direction of rotation, as is on my belt.
I'm having trouble with this belt. I put it on my Ridgid saw, TS2424, but it seems to want to continually ride off the pulley. It's not slipping off, like it's loose. More like, it's being turned off after a single revolution. I have the "smooth" side down around the pulleys. Not sure what else I should be doing.
Jay1102 on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Jay, first of all make sure the pulleys are in alignment. Then turn your belt over and put the link tabs in the pulleys rather then the smooth side. The link tabs act as the v on a v-belt.. I think you will find that this will work great and you should have no more belt ride off. I have this belt on my jointer and it really improved the performance. Hope this helps. Randy
when installing, does direction matter ?
Garry B on Mar 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. There is a right way and a wrong way. It should be installed the right way.
Will this product work as a fan belt in an antique car with moderate rpm?
Tom C on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I haven't tried it on an antique car, but I did put it on a metal lathe which has considerable RPM.
It has worked fine for about a year. No issues.
I don't see that it would be a problem using it on your car.
What have you lost by trying?
i need to replace a 5l450 belt what would be the equivalent for power twist?
Bruno D on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 1/2 inch power twist will adapt to most V type belts that are under the total length of the power twist and given better performance and much less vibration.
can I use this product or a tractor so I don't have to take off the front pump to put on a fan belt?
tony s on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: i used it on my case 580 c backhoe works great.
Is the width of the belt measured on the outside of the belt or the inside?
David K on Aug 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 1/2” is the pulley size - the belt will ride slightly higher in the groove.
I have just acquired an old 10 inch Rockwell contractors saw.Seems very noisy.Can the bearings be lubricated?
Robert H on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought a used 10" Jet contractor saw. It was noisy and the motor moved a lot up and down while running. When I shut it off the motor would jump. I replaced the belt with a Power Twist Link belt from Rockler and now the saws runs much smoother and no longer jumps when shutting down. Don't know if this will help with the noise or not on your saw. But mine seems to run alot smoother with the new belt. Hope this helps. Russ
Can you use for multiple belt?
James G on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used it to replace a 40 year old belt on my Delta bandsaw. Took out the noise and vibration completely. I replaced my bandsaw tires at the same time to get my blade to track more consistently. Since I had already replaced and adjusted the blade guides there was nothing left that would have it in like new condition.

Can I use this belt in a reversed mode with the lugs outside to grab onto an object and help our FTC robot climb a 50 degree angled climb? Are the parts interchangable so I could increase the distance between lugs?
Pilum40 on Nov 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I can't answer the first part of your question but the lugs are definitely interchangeable and you can make the belt any length you want as long as you have enough belt.
Good for high torque? Looking to use with a snow blower attachment.
