Pot metal pulley repair
I got an email a while back from a guy who had a small bandsaw and the pulley was broke and he needed another one made. So he sent it to me and i didn't have the right size aluminum without turning a big chunk of billet so i proceded to fix his. I chucked it up and cut some of the broken ribs from the center. Then i turned a blank from 4" round that i have on hand and bolted it to the broken pulley. Oh and i had to smooth out some of the hammer dents with my pointy cutter...Bob

That pulley looks like it is probably 3X stronger now than it was originally. Cool
