I know this is an old sticky, but thought I would add some useful information.
I have recently been trialling some new belts for feeders.
For us the best belts are presently the silicone ones.
They grip the best and also don`t break down in sun light.
Presently we are using 2.62mm x 82.22mm
These were supplied by www.easternseals.co.uk
Silicone 70 FDA O-Rings BS102 to BS178 Cross Section 2.62mm - BS152S70FDA SILICONE70 FDA 82.22 x 2.62mm RED .
Less than 30p a piece plus P&P.

I have also just ordered some more which are 2.62mm x 75.87mm
I will post after i have tested these smaller belts.

I hope this is useful for someone.

Hi Ref  the plastic tape grip problem, I had a lot of this when I first used my RV4s  but I found my problem was a mechanical problem with the feeders please see my earlier post http://electricstuff.co.uk/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=8hd0bj0pcvacm0s7cv6nha1sf3&topic=251.msg1309#msg1309

Can someone tell me what those o-rings are on the nozzles (RVT03, RVT04 and RVT05)?

They are all damaged and the components are no longer properly held.

Regards,
Dirk

Measuring from what I have to hand, 1mm thick, centre dia 4, 5.5 or maybe 6,  and 10mm
But they're so cheap it's probably worth getting a selection
Might as well order head O-rings and feeder belts while you're at it.
