Seek Rubber Tire for Seeburg Friction Drive
By Joseph Osborne

We need a source for a rubber drive band for the transmission of
a 1925 Seeburg model E.  It is about 6 inches in diameter and 3/8-inch
thick.  I went to MSC for an O-ring but 1/4-inch was the largest they
had.  It is mounted like a tire on a pulley-wheel which turns the
drive/rewind shaft.

Has anyone else had to replace one of these?  Would a V-belt work
if I found the right size?
