Buy two then you will have a spare.

A lesson learned in my machine shop. Spare belts for each piece of machinery. And write the belt number on the machine somewhere!!!! I put the belt numbers inside the belt cover.

With any item source, be sure to check for the shipping charges to get your total item cost.

If sourcing something that is harder to find, you can often order multiples of the item with no change in shipping charges, if there are any such charges.

Good luck

p.s.
The Gates specification for the #3m315 belt is:

1/8th top width - v belt
Length = 12. 4 inches.

However, note that 12.4 inches = 315mm.

Thus, the Gates specification listing indicates the length of the belt in MM.
The gates listing specification also indicates the width of the top of the belt in MM.

i.e. 3M indicates a top width of 3 milimeters which is also equal to 1/8 of an inch.

315 indicates the belt length of 315 millimeters or 12.4 inches.


So, keep an english to metric conversion table handy and you can quickly visualize the listings on the belt.

Good luck
