So I’ve had my Grizzly G0604X (6” jointer) for a year or two now and it’s been great. After a bonehead move by me while planing some reclaimed pallet wood, all 4 blades were pretty well shot and with Grizzly offering a discount on the Byrd Shelix cutterheads right now, I decided to treat myself to a little upgrade…
Well, here is where my dilemma kicks in: For the LIFE of me, I can’t figure out how to get the pulley off the cutter head drive shaft… every post I read just glosses over this aspect like it’s a cakewalk but my pulley just will not budge.
I’ve removed the bolt & washer that secure the pulley to the shaft. There’s no set screws holding it. I’ve tried a pulley puller but that just ended up snapping a chunk of the inner edge of the pulley off (I’ve already received a replacement from Grizzly).
The parts diagram shows a couple retaining rings (Part #67) but I haven’t found how to access/remove them (I don’t even know that they’re pertinent to this situation)
Can anyone offer any help? I’m as stuck as my pulley is.
