(Beat you to it, Al!)
I am building a CNC foam cutter and am looking for a source for buying the timing belts and drive gears. Appreciate any links or direction.
Consistency is a good thing....unless you're consistently an idiot.
Do a search through the forums here, lots already mentioned.
CNC, Mechatronics Integration and Custom Machine Design (Skype Avail).
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
What is the standard size people strive for for a simple design, and gear reduction?
Try McMaster Carr. Expensive but speedy delivery and they ususally have what you are looking for!

Point of correction:
Cogged timing belts and/or chains are used with SPROCKETS, not gears.
Gears transmit power directly from one to the other via tooth to tooth contact.
Ask for and/or purchase the wrong thing, and you could become highly disappointed with the parts you get.
