I just ordered 20 '729' reel drive belts from S&C Supply Co. 1700 Martin Ave Santa Clara 408 727 4327. He owns a company that supplies drive belts, gears etc., most everything for power transmission..

He did not have my belts in stock but called the supplier in LA & had them shipped up in two. Days. He recognized CHM & said he has sold belts to us before. You can try him.
