    i have a american machine and tool company surface planer model 4650.
    does anyone know where i can buy a belt for this machine? i went to the web site and all that came up was a company with the same name and location but they only sell industrial pumps. any help will be greatly appreciated. :) also it was made in 1990.

    the tool crib sells belts made up of links, you can custom fit belts to any size by adding links.

    cant you get a measurement off the machine and go to your local autosupply/hardware store and pick one up? that might be an easier way.......just measure around the pulleys like you would a waiste line on a person basiclly.....belt width will have to come into play also, I am gunna guess that it is an "A" width belt, but could be wrong...........

    AMT went out of business as a tool making and selling concern, must have been since 1990. They were famous (or maybe infamous) for inexpensive or sometimes cheap woodworking tools, usually simple with few fancy features. There is alittle about them on the Old Woodworking Machines forum.

    As far as a belt, the suggestions already given sound good.
