Unfortunately the correct, precise mould-manufactured "A" section V-belts to drive the spindle from the lower shaft are no longer made. The only alternative is a "T-link" belt that is joined in sections. The belts should each be 686 mm long. So, 1.4m is correct to make up the two belts.

ordered online here
