I was at the salvage yard hunting some large pulleys. Picked up two 15" pulleys with about 4' of shafting each because I didn't have any tools with me to remove the pulleys. It ran about $4 for the lot.

The shafting indicated is a pretty dang good price though.

I would like some of those metal prices in UK, just did a comparison on 1.2" aluminium rod in Uk 10$ more, wow, you just dont know how lucky you are over the pond. We get taken to the cleaners on all fronts!

But you have the joy of living in an advanced socialistic society with high taxes to support it while we here lag behind with much lower taxes and are less enlightened. I sure hope we can stay less enlightened.

Thanks for that Darin -- just bought 10 sticks of it. Speedy's shipping is really reasonable too...
