I bought this belt for my mini lathe and it fits perfect. This is the second one I have purchased and they last as long or longer than the oem. A lot faster shipping than HF too!

Excelsior mini-lathe replacement belt
The replacement belts are better than the original belt that comes on the lathe. I know this review is supposed to be about the belt, but I want to say something about the Excelsior lathe as well. I've had mine for about 7 years and I am very happy with it. I thought that I would be limited to turning pens and Christmas ornaments, but you can do a lot more with it. I've turned nice hollow forms with and without lids, bowls, and vases. Technically, you could turn a bowl up to 10" in diameter, but I've found that going above 8" is difficult because of the limited horsepower. I guess if you were very patient, used as shallow blank and took very shallow cuts you could turn a 10" platter. I'm just not that patient. I'm saving for a larger lathe, but I've learn a lot from this little midi. Definitely would recommend it for beginners.

Woodworking Experience:
I like the belt fine, but it was a real chore to replace it on the lathe. First of all, the "manual" that comes with the machine is completely inadequate without even a parts list let alone instruction about replacing the belt.

If you guys are going to continue carrying the machine, you need someone tore-write the manual.

Great replacement belt. Call for instructions to replace. What is in the manual is incomplete. Easy to do, though.

Always good to have an extra one or two on hand as they are not stocked in the stores.
Chuck W on Dec 7, 2019
Mud daubers made their concrete-like nest on my pulley which stretched out the belt so that it shredded. I'll be glad to get a closed in shop in Texas.

Where are the instructions on how to replace?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: How to replace the belt.
-Remove protective cover plate (not referenced in the parts list) from the headstock end of #1-Bed. This allows access to the motor pulley.
-Loosen #33 Socket Head Screw and move #31 Motor Plate upward to take tension off #26 Drive Belt.
-Remove #20 Back Lid from #19 Headstock. This allows access to #25 Drive Pulley.
-Loosen #28 Set Screw ...and remove #22 Balance Wheel (left hand threading). This allows access to #14 Headstock Spindle.
-Carefully, with wooden mallet or other means that will not damage the threading, drive out the #14 Headstock Spindle toward the center of the bed.
-Install new belt on #25 Drive Pulley.
-Reverse these steps to reassemble.
What are the dimensions of the belt, width and length?

does this drive belt fit a turncrafter model #TCLPRO?
Duane S on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, but I really don't know, I assume that it will because so many of those Chinese mini lathes are all made from the same plan.
Will this fit the central machine lathe(10-18)? Model 65345.
Thomas A on Aug 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This belt generically is a "240J3" or a "240J Poly-V belt with 3 ribs". The 240 is the length in tenths of inches; so 24" long. The "J" specifies the height profile and the rib spacing; and then the 3 specifies how many ribs with that spacing. Hope this is of help.
will this belt fit a delta LA200?
j.c. t on Feb 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Don't know if it fits Delta, but it doesn't fit my Jet mini lathe that I bought it for.

BigDDdy on Mar 14, 2019
