    Replacing spindle pulleys?

    Replacing spindle pulleys?

    Replacing spindle pulleys?

    Finding it difficult to remove a pair of damaged spindle pulleys . It’s from an old SIP900mm 01360, it’s a generic wood lathe. Any ideas. I can remove the holding washer and grub screws and pull the first pulley forward but it sticks at the end next to the groove . Any ideas. Cheers John.
