    Good evening Gary, here is the
    company I have used for various machinery belts and pulleys. Located in Plough Lane, Hereford. The company is called Bearings,Belts and Sprockets. Hope this is helpful.
    Cheers Colin.

    Gary, you're modified pulley looks good, can you tell me what the sizes are on the required pulley.
    I managed to get some replacement pulleys last year from a local supplier in Hereford near to me. Would need i/d, o/d, pulley sizes and offset. And depths of Vee.
    I'll check that they are still going tomorrow and post their details.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Bob, and thanks for that and will give them a try. It would seem that every one I have tried so far is having delivery problems. Hopefully, if I keep trying I will get there in the end, with a bit of luck. Regards, Gary.

    hi Bob, I have just been on to Myford, and they don't have one in stock at the moment, they do have an outstanding order with their supplier, and the pulley is on that list so I will go ahead and cut down the original pulley, and make that do until I get a replacement. Regards, Gary.

    The Newton Tesla control system just uses the same Myford motor pulley as the standard motor that would have come with the lathe.

    If the Myford branded pulley does prove to be too expensive, I seem to remember that Newton Tesla were also able to supply a suitable drive pulley, and as you only need the one groove you should be able to find an inexpensive alternative to do the job.

    The Newton Tesla drive system comes as a "plug and play" unit with the motor and control unit pre-wired.
    You have just experienced the joy of fitting the motor by yourself, and this was the only awkward part of the fit.
    The control unit was fitted to the front of the Myford coffin cabinet and held on with four M5 dome headed stainless screws, nuts and washers, and the the motor and control unit just plug into each other.

    Hi Gary,
    That's a hard lesson to learn, you are not the only one to have stuffed up a pulley, sometimes these "easy" jobs take on a whole life of their own.

    Cheers,
    Stephen.
