Drive Belt for Jet Mini

Mike Rubes
>Hi all,

I know this was just covered a few weeks ago, but I cannot find it in the archive, nor did I really take note of that thread then. Of course, I now need some of the information in that thread!

While the drive belt on my Jet mini has not actually broken, there's about a 2 inch segment where the ribs have stripped off. The directions in the manual are pretty clear about how to replace it, so I don't think that will be a problem, but where can I order the belt? Also, I remember some one mentioning that you might as well replace the bearings while in there, but I would't have a clue where to get those either. Finally, should I regrease things or something when I put this all back together? What type grease and where can I get it? :)

Thanks in advance for any help.

Mike
