Title: Unimat PC drive pulley
Post by: proplineruk on March 27, 2017, 03:42:36 PM
Hi all can one of you help me please, I have a Unimat PC lathe that does not have a drive pulley, this part is no longer made, so does anyone have a spare they want to sell , OR anyone who has this machine can they measure the drive pulley and send me the dimensions so I can get one made, as without a drive pulley its as much use as a chocolate teapot, any help you can give would be much appreciated.

Have you tried Ebay. I did a quick search a found a couple of pulleys for the PC lathe.

Only issue they were in the USA, But it's a small part so shipping may not be too excessive.

The pulleys were selling at around 15.

Cheers

A 3d printed one would probably work fine.
