Hello all,

I recently bought a used Grizzly G1019 14” Bandsaw from 1992. The motor and lower wheel pullies are not original and the previous owner said it is currently set up for cutting metal and gave me an extra wheel pulley to be used for wood. I don’t like the current setup and want to get it back to the original pulley sizes. Currently the motor pulley has multiple grooves with 4 different sizes and the wheel pulley has 2 sizes, they don’t line up correctly so the belt is angled. Can anyone tell me what the original diameter of the 2 pullies are? Currently the motor pulley is 3” and the wheel pulley is 5”, the extra wheel pulley I have is 10”. Thanks.

I have a 1019Z which was supposed to be a nicer version of the 1019. Just looked at my pulleys and it looks like the wheel pulley is about 7” outside diameter for the large step and the motor pulley is about 3”. Both pulleys are two step. It was hard to measure becasue the bely wheel is in the way so I couldn’t get a real accurate measurement.

If I’m not mistaken , it should be 6” .

That sounds about right. My measurement was the outside of the pulley, so the 6” is probably pretty close. As far as misalignment of the pulleys, you should be able to loosen the one on the motor shaft and slide it in or out to line them up.

Thanks for the info. I’ll probably look for new pulleys and wanted to get the correct sizes so that the blade speed is correct. I can’t really adjust the current motor pulley to line up because it is a stepped/multiple pully and takes up all the room on the motor shaft. The pulley that lines up with wheel pulley is about 4” diameter and I think that would make the blade turn slower than it is now.
