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!

Terrific results . . . but not as easy to work withPosted January 24, 2014
With that said, working with the links is difficult and hard on the hands and fingers. They don't snap right in as the packaging promises, and I had to wrestle for the better of an hour to get the belts sized to replace the two belts on my drill press. So, these will upgrade your machines but just be prepared to work at sizing them for a longer period than promised.

I happened to be on this website looking for something else and saw this belt. I read the reviews and decided to give it a try. I am very happy I did!
When the belt arrived, I made a line straight to the shop to replace the belt. I was a little skeptical, but thought if it smooths it out even half way it would be much better.
From the moment I started the saw there was almost no vibration at all. This belt, initially at least, is the best belt I have ever seen for a table saw! Hopefully it will be durable and not need replaced for a long time, but even if it does, it was well worth the money! I would recommend this belt to anyone who has a table saw. Mine is a fairly large saw, so if you are a professional, do not worry about it working well on larger saws. My table saw gets more use than any other tool in my shop and for the last month or so I have cringed every time I had to use it; not any more!
Good luck and happy cutting!

What a difference in reduced vibration! Previously, I could not leave a steel ruler on the saw with it almost vibrating off. No problem now! Great product.
