  • I Wonder Who Made This Pulley Assembly

    This pulley was rigged to the back of an old Benchmaster mill. I like the way it separates into two pieces; I assume the maker supplied different, interchangeable sizes of both large and small pulleys. No markings anywhere to indicate who made this. The thread is 1-1/2" - 16tpi and this one has a bronze bushing with 9/16 bore.







    It looks like a versatile design. I haven't seen anything like this listed anywhere, but I may not have looked everywhere. Any ideas?

    Possibly the PO did it for some reason. The large pully looks like what comes as the driven pully for a clothes dryer and maybe that is what the PO started with?
    Just me thinking outside of the box on this one !

      Won't it unscrew when turning one direction?

        That is a pulley out of a cloths dryer. Used one to make a jack shaft for my 1912 Peerless flat belt converted hack saw.

          /\/\/\ Ditto, I use one of those pulleys as a speed reducer on my 12" Craftsman bandsaw when using a metal-cutting blade on steel.

          The dryers with them were probably made in the early '60s, since I found one in a dump in the late '70s. They lasted longer back then.

            The pulley looks like one that came off an old electric cement mixer.

                  Probably Chicago Diecast-

                  They are responsible for a lot of the diecast parts in this world.

                      OK, so it's most likely repurposed from an appliance. That would explain the lack of any branding anywhere.

                      Here, I thought it was part of something like a "universal pulley system" that would include various sizes of large pulley, various sizes of small pulley, thread direction options, etc.
