Absolutely recommended. Super 7 developed a very noisy deep rumble some years ago, to the point that I thought that I was damaging something. Replaced and adjusted the rear spindle bearings, replaced the countershaft bushes and thrust bearing. Changed the belts (redid the headstock!), new standard Myford belts, belt tension. New ball bearings in the motor. Eventually thought I would have to change the motor.
Fenner belts. Bingo. Silence. Just a nice whistle in top range, as if the lathe was new.
The noise and rumble was gone, the machine was no longer vibrating, belt tension is lower so less load on the bearings, and the finish on the work is much better.
Brilliant. Who would have thought belts could cause so much noise and vibration, despite being adjusted as per the book - and many other ways too!
The goods were excellent and arrived promptly
Have only used 1 of the drive belts ordered as yet.
Excellant sevice and quick delivery.
Very pleased will deffinately use again.
The drive belt on my Myford super 7 had seen forty four years of service and was showing it's age with cracks and slippage. Ordered a new one from Lathe Spares which was delivered quickly and was fitted
in a few minutes. It just needed one link removing, fitting the correct way round and now no slipping, less vibration and so quiet I thought I had gone deaf. Happy days. Thanks Mike.
My order for a Fenner segmented belt (known for quality) was delivered by Royal Mail within two days of ordering. Excellent service and reasonable price.
Excellent service and speedy delivery thanks very much
A very good service, the correct parts received quickly. I would recommend Lathe Spares to my friends.
The belt I ordered for my MLS7 arrived in a timely manner fitted in a couple of minutes and the lathe back working.
Very fast delivery and great service. Thank you. AAAAA+++++
Easy changed link type belt excellent quality and service
Link Belt and Oil Nipples arrived promptly, belt fits perfectly, very quiet, much easier than dismantling headstock. Definitely an upgrade and cheaper than other belt suppliers.
An easy transaction and good price arrived on time.
Excellent service and advice, highly recommended
Instructions on how to fit the Fenner belt and it's type would have been useful,but I got the info from the Fenner website in the end and fitted it easily. The Myford oil nipples replaced the ball oilers on my Colchester tailstock and mounted on suitable small pillars, were used to fit a Vernier type DRO to the tailstock. Thanks for the very rapid service, the parcel came next day!
Neede a new belt for my Myford S & and the link belt I got from "Lathe Spares" is a very good quality Belt. I am very pleased with it. Delivery was also very good.
Hi Mike, the attachment arrived in good order, have yet to bolt it to the machine. Regards Brian

Arrived quickly, fitted well, does the job, only slight -ve, could have done with instructions as to which direction to fit it, but was fairly easy to work out

I Have used these guys in the past good spares good price and fast delivery. No exception this time fast delivery pleasure to do business with. karl
Excellent product!! easy to fit just had to remove one link to get a good fit on my Super 7 and it ran very quiet and smooth. Not sure how some of these belts get some bad press,,,,this one is superb and highly recommended.Really did not want to strip out all the running gear just to fit a standard belt and this saves all the faff,,,,,D
