I have been getting some PMs about these and thought it would be a good idea to start a thread that could possibly be "Pinned" to the Massey forum so all can see. I think Kenny can handle that for me.
Here we Go!
several years ago I decided I was going to find a way to make these hard to come by pulleys. I contacted my local bearing supplier "Werner" and asked them if they could find a supplier of the raw stock with 41 teeth so we can keep the stock belt. They found a supplier and it required a $600.00 minimum order. I bit the bullet and ordered 3 sticks to make the minimum.
From there i used my bothers lathe on the weekends and came up with this.
The Broaching was done by a friend of my bother that purchased the broach and did 2 pulleys as a trial.
The Broaching is perfect and I used those 2 on a deck and that is where the project got left at about 2 years ago.
I am going to revive the project if there is some interest in these pulleys. They will not be cheap but I do not need to get rich off them ether. I guesstamet would be in the $60 to $70 dollar range. You would have to reuse the outer shield from you old pulleys and mount them. I remember Parts Tree had some old stock single (outer) and was getting $72.00 I believe.
As this goes on I think I will make my own shields and sell the pulley complete.
