Mill pulley repair

A while ago, I used the soft blow hammer to remove  a collet chuck from the spindle, I missed and damaged the step V Belt pulley.










As you can see there is a substantial break in the top pulley.










The Pulley was turned to 30mm and a depth of 3.5 mm.











I turned a bit of scrap aluminium to 29.9 mm and parted it off at a thickness of 5mm.










After pressing the new part onto the pulley, I faced it then turned a matching taper.










Its quite a good blend don’t you think.










Back in situ on the mill.
