Where are some good things to take apart to get belts / gears like pic related? I've tried DVD drives / floppy drives but finding ones with actual belts seems pretty rare. Obviously my local radioshack store stocks them, but they're super expensive. And I don't want to wait a month for aliexpress to ship.

What size? Inkjet printers always have at least one lightweight belt to move the printhead, and occasionally one or two more to operate the various drive rollers and feed mechanisms.

I do stress "lightweight", however. They're usually no more than about 5mm in width, and in a pitch substantially smaller than even GT2.

Printers and photo copiers, no idea where to find more heavy duty belts.

Really? I have only ever seen V-belts in them.

Honestly, just buy the parts you need. There's so many different width and spacing combinations that if you actually want to achieve something specific (gearing ratio, space between the two shafts) you're pretty much never going to have what you want on hand from stuff you took apart
