Product Information:

Reduce vibration in any of your belt driven machines with the Power Twist Link Belt! Common V-belts develop a "memory" and retain their non-operating shape causing annoying and unnecessary machine vibration. However, these specially engineered link belts do not develop a "memory", but retain their flexibility for smooth operation. Prepackaged 4' length. Maximum recommended belt speed 5000 feet/minute.


  • Reduces vibration and improves overall drive system performance

  • Unique link system is easily adjustable for the length required

  • 1/2" Link-Belt replaces common 1/2" V-Belt

  • Convenient 4' length can be adjusted to fit most woodworking machines

  • Includes instructions for installation and use

    Comments about 4 Foot of 1/2" Link Belt :

    Power Twist claim that their v belt reduces vibration and after rebuilding my second hand saw bench including replacing all bearings this was the last hope to get rid of vibration. Power Twist solved the problem...............really thrilled.

    Comments about 4 Foot of 1/2" Link Belt :

    I bought this at my local Woodcraft store because of the rave reviews. After a struggle to get it on my 20 year old Delta 14 inch bandsaw, I can see no difference of any kind. If anything it might vibrate just a tiny fraction more based on my nickel balance test. I could balance a nickel before with the original belt. I took it off and am going back to the original 20 year old belt. I will probably return the Power Twist belt.

    Comments about 4 Foot of 1/2" Link Belt :

    This belt has a nice satisfying whir to it and a complete lack of vibration. Very nice. I wish there was a step-by-step guide for opening the belt to add or remove links, specifically which order you engage and disengage the two tabs you have to remove and reinstall

    Stopped all the vibration in my 60 year old Craftsman band say. Yes I said 60 year old band saw. So old Sears nor Craftsman can match model number.

    Reduced Both Vibration and Noise

    Comments about 4 Foot of 1/2" Link Belt :

    Replaced an 80 inch belt on a Rockwell 12 inch gap bed wood lathe with this and it reduced the vibration so well that I could balance a nickle on the lathe bed while it was running. I also replaced the belt on a Craftsman 12 inch bandsaw and it reduced the amount of vibration in that machine as well. The operating noise level on both of these machines was greatly reduced making it nice to be able to hear while working on the machine. I am very satisfied with this product and I would recommend it to anyone having vibration/noise problems with the machines in their shop.

    Comments about 4 Foot of 1/2" Link Belt :

    Didn't have to calculate belt size via old formula and this belt allows for some imperfections in pulley alignment. I have built several large tools and found this belt system amazingly simple and reliable although somewhat pricey !

    came coiled backwards and it has somewhat of a memory so I had to recoil it and let it set for a few days to relax so I could use it.
