Another machine!!

One of the great things about sewing is that people want to give you their
old machines!  My uncle brought one round today and my Mum asked why I
needed another machine...I couldn't get her to understand.  Anyway it's a
Wertheim SS-58, its all metal and looks seventies.  It has 6 stitch settings
and adjustable feed dogs and some kind of buttonholing system.  However the
belt keeps slipping and I have no idea where to find a new one.  It's an
interesting belt because it has teeth and I can't see why it's slipping at
all, but my uncle says it's just too loose.  Would anyone know how to go
about finding one of these?
Thankyou again!

You should be able to reposition the motor to tighten up the belt.
There is an adjustment screw on the bracket that holds the motor to
the machine.

We had a go at that but it's still too loose.  I think the belt is just old
and stretched.

Ok, new belt it is.  Any sewing machine store and Wal Mart sell belts.
You do not necessarily need a toothed one.  Good luck I am sure it
will be fine.  Have fun with it.  I love all of mine and have been in
mourning since I traded the industrial treadle for a paint job on my
truck.........But I will get over it as soon as the truck comes back I
will be at the Sally Ann and other favourite pick up spots..ggggg
