Subject:
Mini lathe belt too short?

EagleS.C.
>LAst week I changed out the belt on my jet mini lathe.
The belt was sent to me from JET in the summer, I held off replacing the old belt until I thougt the worn belt was giving me problems with vibrations.
The problem is the new belt does not allow the banjo to slide past the motor.
It is also difficult to change speeds.
This belt came from Jet and I intend to contact them but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
