I suppose I am one of the luckly ones. Mine partially failed this past weekend after 11 years
of light use. The sandpaper peeled off the backing. The backing will still pull a board through
But it is time to order the replacement. After all the problems documented on non
OEM conveyor belts, where did you purchase yours? Searching with part number 60-0316-P,
Amazon and Ereplacement and a few others list an OEM replacement. The stock
photo is a light colored belt where mine is dark, almost black. I suppose this is
OK since as best I can tell, the -P in the part number indicates a newer version of the
conveyor belt. The price seems to indicate an OEM belt too. My suspicion grows when the
description says 16 inch wide. I read that the OEM belt is 16 1/4 inch wide and this missing
1/4 inch can cause tracking problems.
The Woodcraft and Rockler sites do not bring up a true OEM conveyor belt. I do have a local
Rockler and Woodcraft but I have not seen this belt in the stores. In store ordering is
fine with me if it is not going to take a month wait for the next bulk shipment to arrive.
Dang thing broke when I need it the most.
