Yep.  $500 and change from Integra.  Wow.  I'm only missing 3 so far, so I'm good for a while.  I only use 10" and 12" paper.

 

One of them actually made it to my blix rack, jammed it, and stripped the rack gear on the drive roller.  I have no idea where the other two are.

I got a belt that's close in size, texture, and stretch.  It's from an 8-track player.  Here's where I got it:

It is FM7.25.  It's a bit narrower but otherwise it looks like it will work.  I'm going to get a set and try it out,  I'll let everyone know.

 

I'm still suffering with the short prints:

Any ideas are appreciated.

 

Take care,

OK.  I put 12 FM7.25 belts on our DKS1710 machine (since that was all the company had) and it's working fine.  I replaced the blue belts on the exposure deck.  They are the belts that run across the two roller on the right and they uncurl the paper.   I'll let you know how long they last.  The belts measure as follows:

.2" X .023" X 7.25"

184mm long (58.5mm diameter) X 0.6mm thick X 5mm wide

I'm having the same issue in my DKS 1750,  every week one of this blue belts is breaking.

In my oppinion I think that any rubber with the correct size would the the job but the difficulty would be change the belts because is necessary to disassemble part of the exposure deck to just put those new belts.

 

Anyone can tell me the right steps to disassemble it to change the belts? 

 

Is necessary take out from the machine completely the expossure plan deck?

As I said earlier I'm using rubber cassette / 8 track player belts.  I get them here:

I am using the FM7.25 belt.

I have no trouble with them but I print only 10" and 12" paper.  I have only 12 on there instead of the full 22 belts since that was all he had when I bought them.

They've been rolling along for almost a year now with no jams.  Probably had 200 rolls of paper through there.

 

Take care,

Ken
