    ok call me a cheap skate but last year i bought a cheap electric plane from argos for £40, i only wanted it for a couple of days and it server the purpose very well. Only problem i had was that i melted two drive belts when i got carried awya with the depth (3mm)! oop.s..
    anyway i'm trying to find replacement belts and cant find them anywhere... even a google search didnt work. for the sake of £4-5 any one with any ideas?
    i dont want to buy a new one as I'll never use it after this job, (slimming down a built in architrave), and hire rates seem rather pricey.. (25 quid for a w/e)

    OK, then, you're a cheapskate. Happy? :LOL:

    Sorry, couldn't resist that. Most of the short flat belts I've come across are made for specific machines, if JCB (Alba) can't help you may struggle

    Try machine mart, some of the 'Clarke' branded stuff they sell is often a re-branded item such as JCB, Challenge etc but machine mart carry spares
