Alternate Sources for Delta 46-715 Lathe Parts
I had the reeves pulley on my Delta 46-715 lathe crumble apart on me four months ago. Since that time I have been trying to get a replacement part from a couple of different Delta parts manufacturers. I finally received word that this part has been discontinued. This is not surprising since I have heard that this is a very common problem with the 46-715 type 2 lathe. I am wondering if anyone has found a suitable replacement for this part perhaps from a different tool manufacturer?
The part number is 909945, this split pulley goes on a 16 mm motor shaft, and the outside diameter of the pulley is approximately 115 mm. The pulley is fastened to the shaft with a straight keyway.
I would appreciate hearing if anyone else has been able to find this part?
