Belts for tape recorders and cassette recorders

Where can I buy belts for a Sony TC-DFM cassette recorder ? And for a Tandberg 1/4" recorder model 11.
The take up spool belt is failing.

Re: Belts for tape recorders and cassette recorders

If the original belt is available and in one piece you can measure it; you will need the diameter, width and thickness. Belts are normally round, square or flat. Most belts stretch, so you will need to get a smaller diameter belt than what you measure. I usually get belts from MCM Electronics; they are on-line. If the belt is broken you can use a piece of string to determine diameter.
