Default Canvas belting- 1"

Anyone know who sells canvas belting at 1-1.5" wide. I have a project in need of ~10'. I have a clipper lacer so will not be a problem with joints. Thanks-!!

I beleive that Hit-N-miss enterprises sells belting that thin. If not that thin, you can check with your local hydraulic hose/industrial rubber supplier. My local guys (Haynes Rubber Co.) sell belting and can also split/slit belting that is too wide down to a custom width. Just so you'll know, you normally run belting about 1/2" narrower than the pulley. That doesn't always apply, but might be helpful to know when you run across a 5 1/2" pulley.....

I should also let you know that clipper lacing comes in two varieties. Galvanized (mild steel, easy to use with the lacing press) and High-tehsile steel. Hi-ten is very hard to crimp with the lacing press unless you have the industrial roller version. If you can get galvanized, go with it and get plenty of it since it is beginning to be phased out.

I get my belting from McMaster-Carr, http://www.mcmaster.com/ . Search for "flat belt". They have all types and sizes. I generally get the light duty type. I get my order in 3 days or less.
