Reduce Vibration, Change Lengths Easily
I’ve battled band saw vibration ever since I bought it in the early ‘80’s. I’ve re-balanced the wheels, stiffened the frame, added ballast, and changed the pulleys, but the most effective and least expensive “fix” was to install a Power Twist belt. It is made of short inter-locking sections so it seems to run truer, and transmit less vibration. The inter-locking Power Twist links belts make it easy to adjust belt length (no more frantic trips to five stores trying to find the correct belt length). The A/4L 1/2" size is the most common for woodworking equipment. Made in USA.

Comments about Fenner PowerTwist 1/2'' x 4':
WITH THE TWIST BELTS; YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO OUT AND HUNT A PARTICULAR SIZE BELT. IF YOU FIT BELT TO PROPER SIZE; THE LIFE OF THE BELT IS JUST AS GOOD AS AN ORDINARY 1/2" BELT. GLEN C. BANZHAF

I am hoping the belt streches because it would seem to be alittle short. I was able to put in on a pully...but thats it...The Tightest belt in my shop.

Fenner Power Twist Belt
from St. Louis
I have had the twist belt on my table saw for years. It significanlty reduces vibration. Since then, I have added the belts to my jointer (old belt was drying out) and my band saw. The individual links permit an easy length match to the old V-belts.
Item exactly as advertized

Easy to adjust as it wears in, easy to re-use and re-adjust if needed on different equipment (be sure to save unused links).
