I have a Rockwell tool & cutter grinder that just ate it's belt. Rockwell part # 49-085, a 35 inch flat belt 3/4 inch wide. These are apparently scarce as chicken lips. Anyone have an idea as to where to find one? Without this part I have a boat anchor.

Is there a reason why you cannot use a leather belt or a multi groove automotive rubber belt on it?

Maybe turn an auto belt ,run the grooves out then it's all flat. Leather belt may work , there pretty good . The nation ran on them for over a century.

This is a rather high speed grinder and vibration from a splice will be transferred to the part and it's finish. Tool grinders are fickle beasts.
