    Hi Dan, I'm back in town and will dig out that jig to make a pulley. Any idea the diameter you need?

    Dan, I know Louie has had experience with flat belt drives. Also, I have a friend who is a fine cabinet maker and motorcycle nut and he was asked about making the rear sheave for an 1910 Ex. His plan was to make it out of thin layers of hardwood veneer over a proper diameter buck, using modern high strength, water proof glue. He never did it, but it sounded good
