I have an 1960’s Davis and Wells Jointer. In our move, the drive pulley was damaged. I’ll post a picture and measurements when I have a chance. Short question: what’s a good source for a replacement pulley?

Thanks.

I have had good luck finding replacement pulleys for lathe and Band-saw repairs at MSC

Tractor Supply is a good bet if you have one in your area.

Tractor supply, Graingers, MSC, McMaster Carr, Fastenal, a good hardware store (like ACE), most any motor repair shop, etc… and there are some on-line specality places as well. Unless it’s a stepped pulley or some weird bore size, they are easy to find.

Cheers,
Brad

I had a jointer pulley that was vibrating when i rebuilt it, even with new bearings. Bought a used replacement on Ebay, still funky. Then I found an exact replacement size of the TB Woods brand for like 20 bucks. I’ve bought a couple TB Woods pulleys to replace some damaged aluminum one on older delta machinery. I’ve been very impressed. They are painted cast iron though so they are heavier but the finish is nice and they are good and balanced. They didn’t have the exact size I needed for my Delta bandsaw so I ended up buying 2 to get the math right on RPM. Got it closer to 3000 magic SFPM that it originally was so I’m happy. One of em I had to file the inside of the pulley to get it to fit on the shaft but that’s not uncommon.

Wow. Bad luck.

I needed a multi-step pulley for my old Atlas drill press which I could not find. I found the right sized pulley. I had a machine shop close to me cut the center out on a lathe to the right size. I could not find a pulley with the right spindle shaft size.

That’s a very cool looking pulley have tried calling Davis and wells. Dan might have one he’s helped me with original parts for my tablesaw.

This pulley assembly is call an interchangeable or Quick Detachable pulley.

The hub/flange/bushing and pulley are 2 separate parts.
Tear it down, check for any PN cast on pieces. Measure the hub flange and might find just the pulley.
Maybe Grainger?


Thanks, everyone. The diameter is 7.5”
