    Used to be a guy in the ??? Manchester...Rochdale area....I think it went under the name of "Armstead" might be wrong though.
    Used him a couple of times, certainly new his stuff and the belts were good quality.
    Sounded like a one man band taking the orders and getting them made somewhere.
    Excellent service.
    Here you go.

    Was on a visit/tour of the factories recently and was impressed by them.

    Thanks
    Try googling for conveyor belt makers, assuming its an endless vulcanized belt then your'll need the width (don't go by the old belt- its usually narrower than the drive rollers but wide enough to go under the side belting strips) and your need the diameter of the drums plus the distance between their shaft centres with the tensioners right back- with this a good manufacturer will be able to work the size required to make an endless belt.

    They will also need to know the belts thickness, number of fabric plys and how thick the rubber is on the top and bottom (example- 10mm thick belt could come out as something like - "10mm total thickness with 3 plys, 2mm bottom cover and 3mm top cover")

    Advantage of Armstead was that he seemed to have a good working knowledge of Farm machines......he knew what you were talking about.
    No doubt though as FF describes most manufacturers will be able to sort it out.

    You could try Econ Engineering at Ripon they bought out Atkinsons of Clitheroe many years ago, they would most probably have the parts books somewhere on file to help you. www.econ.uk.com 01765 605321
