I remember a thread some time back about somebody working through getting this fixed and I think they finally got it but how many more are out there?

I have no clue about options I’d guess if you find or can custom order a flat rubber belt of the same size you’ll be OK. Kudos to you for putting some needed attention and support to these machines and their users.

Thanks so much for that site man!!!! Just curious as to the options. Too damn bad that it’s not built of solid heavy metal The Fostex machines seem to live in the shadows a bit which is too bad, servvice I think a lot of it is simply related to parts availability and user community support.
