I just ordered up some flat belting from leatherdrivebelts.com (John Knox) for the shaper and an old-Sebastian lathe. Really good experience, John knows his trade and walks you through a series of questions to help ensure you get the right belt.

He offers leather and synthetic, and does the lacing/clipper strip for you. Belts are shipped USPS and you don't pay until you have installed and are happy with the product.

I should have these next week, I'll post a review then. I opted for Synthetic for many upside reasons. As John said, if our grandfathers had the option, they would have run the synthetic.
