Default Motorizing a Phil mill

I am looking to motorize my grain mill as my next project.

I have a motor and a 3" dia. v belt pulley for it.

The shaft on a phil mill is 3/8", anyone know where to get a pulley that would work on the shaft of my phil mill?

Studies show that three out of four people make up 75% of the worlds population.

I have a Phil Mill II and I used the shoulder screws from McMaster Carr (Part Number: 91259A634 I think) to attach a roller chain sprocket. I had it welded on at an exhaust shop for $5.

My setup is chain driven from a bicycle, but it's not really an ideal setup because of the side load that's put on the bushing. Works for now but I'll probably change it in the future. Here's the write-up...http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/not-drill-112378/

You could try a v-belt pulley from this link McMaster-Carr Just match the belt size, bore size, and pulley diameter.
