Hey DEC DECMATE folks!
The fellow whose msg is copied below is looking for some advice on
re-belting a DECMATE II. As I have neither experience nor manual on the
machine, I feel some of you may help instead as you're the types who really
Email directly to Bill. The machine is somewhere in Minnesota. Thanks muchly!

My mother-in-law (you can see why this is important to me!) has a
DECMATEII Cira 1983. The belt on the printer broke. DEC will sell her
the belt but nobody knows how to put it on. can you recommend sites,
collectors, or hobbyiests who may have this knowledge? She is also
willing to sell to a collector.
