that would be a bad idea

1st, any sort of sticky stuff is going to accumulate saw dust and soon become unsticky stuff. Loose grit is going to come off on the lumber and be hell on chisels, hand planes etc.

I have this same machine and the belt has worked fine for many years. QED, the proper belt can be found and it will be trouble-free. When mine ceases to work fine I will get a replacement from the new company that restarted making a similar but better machine, I suppose as soon as the non-compete agreement ran out. I think they are out of MN, can't recall name. Or follow Barry's sage advice based on experience.
