In Yorkshire I use aompany called WDS for knobs, fasteners, clamps and other industrial bits.

For saw blades I use Haworth Industrial Saws. New blades, sharpening etc. Really good service, ask for Adam.

For timber I often use British Hardwoods, between Keighley and Skipton. Very friendly and helpful.

Nearly forgot!

Airedale Factors on the outskirts of Silsden, West Yorkshire are good for electrical motors etc, have a look at their website for details.

Thanks Bob, done that.

If you have the web addresses, it would be useful in the future.

I presume you are referring to a cogged V belt shown on the left rather than poly vee or toothed timing belts that need very different pulleys?
