Belt guard source
by: Eric

If you haven't found a guard yet you can look at McMaster-Carr at I use them daily at work and they are a top shelf company. When you go to their site type steel guards for chains and belts.

Beslt gaurd for craftsman compressor 265-104
by: Bill

Well, that is the model number for quite an old Craftsman, twin piston.

As was noted earlier, an attempt to find parts for this compressor failed.

If you Google Compressor Belt Guard you will find sources. You'll have to find one that you can cobble up to fit your Craftsman compressor, I'm afraid.

Even with the model #, I seriously doubt you'll find a replacement off the shelf, as it were.

I'd engage in keeping my eye open for junk that would serve with little or no modification, and/or consider having one fabbed. An ornamental iron outfit might be a place to start.

Good luck.

Belt guard for Craftsman compressor

Jeff, to be sure, we need the model number.

There's going to be one somewhere on the compressor on a plate of some sort, we expect.

Please provide that as a comment here.
