I am almost out of 7/32” leather cylinder phonograph belting, and now am FORCING myself to find the correct leather hide to continue making the stuff.

7/32” is exact for Edisons and smaller European and Graphophone Q and B models, and Class M governors.

5/16” is for the Edison Triumphs, Class M (main drive), Graphophone mid side machines, and some commercial shaving machines.

⅜” is for the BIG cylinder phonographs like the Graphophone BC, and others. Also works on Edison electric shaving machines that take a flat belt.

Please reply to me in this thread, or via PM to tell me your future needs for these widths, so I can determine if I need to pursue cutting the 5/16” and ⅜” belts. Leather is not inexpensive, and I am very picky as to what colors/quality that I purchase.

Thank You

So far, it looks like I really need to get some 5/16” cut. Unfortunately it won’t be in time for the Wayne show. I haven’t found leather suitable yet.

Hi Wyatt,

When you get them all in stock again, I'd be
interested in a few feet of all the available widths.

Thanks,

Chuck

Its a go. Unfortunately the price is going up just a tad, because I want to mend this belt with FEWER splices. To do this, I waste more of the hide in the process. But the final result will be worth it.
