    Thumbs up Timing belt length calculator.

    I was having a little problem getting my gear spacing and timing belt length right for my design. I had a tight fit. It finally dawned on me that I needed to get the belt length and figure the distance between pulleys. I added a few functions to an Excel work sheet that made it easier.

    I did not know where to post it. Hope someone can use it. I got the formulas from http://www.misumiamerica.com/ page 169

    I checked it a couple of times and it seems OK to me but I am prone to mistakes. Check the work. I am not responsible for the use of this file.

    FYI - the spreadsheet has an error.

    The cell 8 x (De - de) needs to be

    =8*B7^2

    (was =8*A7)

    anyway - I've got a program now to help me pick belts. Thank you!
