Where to find a v-belt pulley?
I jsut put together a stand for my grain mill. The only time that Ive use it so far, I had trouble keeping the RPMs down. When the grains were in the hopper, the drill either wanted to go full bore or not at all.
Here's the deal: my dad has an old lathe that hasnt been assembled, much less used, in years. The lathe has a 1/3 HP motor that I am daydreaming about mounting to the mill. The motor turns at 1750 RPM and has a V-belt pulley with a radius of 9/16 inches. I figure that I need a pulley of radius 5.5 inches or so to slow the RPMs down below 200 as is recomended.
CUT TO THE CHASE: Where can I get an 11 inch diameter V-belt pulley hopefully with a 3/8" bore?
Side question: What is the drawback to the mill turning faster than 200 RPM? My crush looked good, and didnt stick.
Thanks in advance.
