Received the new motor pulley today from the South Island, and fitted it on the motor this afternoon. Everything worked perfectly so I checked the speed range with my digital tach. Normal running gives 1400 RPM, 960 RPM, 659 RPM. Using the back gear gives 254 RPM, 174 RPM, 119 RPM, - so quite a reasonable range.
The company I bought the pulleys from gave excellent service, and even credited me one shipping fee when they noticed I had ordered 2 pulleys separately, then sent them as one package. Don't get that sort of honesty much these days !
Only used the 1/2"pulley, as the 3" would have been too fast with the 2800 RPM, motor (rear shaft would have been running at 1680 RPM not 896 RPM as it is now). All ready to start making 'stuff'. If you were wondering, the red spot on the chuck, is the laser on the reflector strip for the digital tach.
I have also 'repurposed' an old computer stand as a tool tray. Quite handy as it can swivel in a number of directions. Waiting for some new belts to arrive, as these have seen better days. Might make a flip up top cover for all the pulleys as well, just for safety.
