Hi Folks, Its been several months since I last posted. We got moved and started the new job, Now that the house is unpacked, I have started setting up the new shop. I decided to take it slow and do some much neglected maintenance on each of my tools as I go along. Last weekend it was time for Lathe Maintenance. I had decided to replace the belt as the other was the original and had developed a memory leading to two humps in the belt which in turn created a wobble / vibration during turning. I bought one of those vibration-less link belts. All was going good till I took off the old belt, then it all went to heck. The motor side pulley slammed closed as the belt came off. I failed to recognize that the pulley was two parts , one side fixed and one side under tension. As I attempted to pry apart the two parts, the fixed side shattered into several pieces (dozen or so). I assume that since the lathe is variable speed, the motor side pulley expands or contracts (in turn adjusting the diameter of the pulley from 1 to 3 inches) as the speed is adjusted? My lathe is the predecessor to the grizzly 462 (according to the techs, only the tail stock changed, so the headstock side parts should be the same). So here's my question(s) Should I only replace the broken pulley or should I go ahead and replace all the parts along the motor shaft? What would you do? When it comes to mechanical, I'm not the best guy to work on it, So before I make any purchases or commit, I like to get several opinions. Here's a link to the schematic for reference http://cdn0.grizzly.com/partslists/g0462_pl.pdfÂ Â The part that has to be replaced is number 9, But I am wondering if I should go ahead and replace 17 through 24?
