Topic tags/keywords: radial arm saw ras machine pulley thread threaded sheave craftsman

I have been looking for something to do with the other end of my RAS motor besides just a drill chuck. I always thought that the speed would be a little much and it is only one speed.

I just found WM berg.com. They will drill and tap a pulley to my specifications so now I can use my RAS to turn my 5/8 arbor with a “shopsmith” convex disk. If I use a 2 inch pulley on my RAS and a 4 or 5 incher on my arbor I should have a workable speed for a 12 inch disk.

And with a little imagination I can set up to power some of my other table top machines that have pulley drive. Maybe a custom setup for my grinding stones, or to power my 1929 Walker- Turner table mount lathe, or….. switch over to the chuck to use my flexible sanding shaft...........WHO NOSE what is possible.

Dont unload those old RAS’s if the motor is still good….ADAPT......it is cheap.
