Hello All,

newbie to this forum and to woodturning ( well a 45 year gap since messing about in woodwork class at school).

Recently purchased an old Myford Mystro as a starter into my retirement hobby and so far have managed to create a couple of decent pieces plus a load of woodshavings. Now Ive gone and broken the belt on the lathe, ordered replacement but looks like a total stripdown to replace the belt.

Are there any show stopping gotchas in taking the thing to bits and more importantly putting it back together.

Many thanks

Hello David

Have only just seen his post so you may have solved the problem already.

I had the same problem with my Myford metal turning lathe.

You can buy segmented or toothed belting which is made up of segments that clip together so that you can then feed it round the pulleys without taking half the machine to bits.

Hope this helps.
