Wanted 64" Loop MXL .25 Loop Belt

Postby techsavvy34 » Mon Jul 21, 2014 4:11 am

The last item I need to complete my build is the 64" loop MXL belt. I looked everywhere for one but I haven't been able to find one that size. Does anyone have an extra one for sale or know of any place to buy one?

Is this for a 2.x laser cutter? It doesn't use a continuous loop of belt. You can buy a longer piece and cut it down to size.

I got my belts from Econobelt, but they seem to be out of business. http://www.econobelt.com/ now links to https://sdp-si.com/eStore/CoverPg/Drive_Components.htm .

Yes it's for the 2.x laser cutter. It does use a looped belt on the z axis lift.

I just recently had the same problem. I solved it by ordering from Stock Drive Products P/N A 6R51M830060 which is a 1660mm GT2 6mm wide with 2mm pitch single sided belt. For the pulleys, I ordered from Ebay, 4 Aluminum GT2 7mm wide pulleys. I did have to modify them a bit by turning them down slightly in the area of the screws to fit within the bore of the bracket. The fit could also be accomplished by putting a plastic or metal spacer between the pulley and the bearings so they don't rub. Since all 4 pulleys are the same, the system works the same as the MXL inch belt as called for in the plan.

Thanks for the info jimc80. I was already planning on purchasing a GT2 belt that I found online but this one is even closer to the length I was looking for.

Oops, I forgot. My Z axis isn't hooked up.
