Need drive band for Cascade drum carder

Help! the band broke from my Cascade Mills drum carder. They don't make them anymore, so I don't know what to do. I had my swimming pool man make me a band, but it was too rubbery and broke at the seam after a few turns of the crank. I need a stiffer band, that has a good tight seam. Does anyone know what I should do about this?

Here is what the drum carder looks like where you put the band on. It goes in a figure eigt around the two wheels. I can provide dimensions of the band.

Cotton Chenille yarn

I am offering some cotton chenille yarn at $5 per skein plus shipping. The yarn is natural white, and comes in two different weights. Bulky weight--this knits up thick and quick, skeins are approximately 100 yds. Sportsweight-- a lighter gauge, skeins are approximately 150 yds. These are great for hand-dyeing, or hand-painting projects. I've used a lot of this yarn to make bath mitts to go with my hand milled goats milk soap. I have lots available. So, if you want some, just let me know how much you need, and your zip code or country, and I will search for the lowest shipping rates.
