Frame

The frame supports the belt, the drive pulley and the tail pulley. They are typically made of aluminum, steel or stainless steel.

It is important to choose a frame that is made as a single piece. Frames that are made of multiple pieces are susceptible to twisting or racking, which can lead to issues with tracking.
