Grizz sent me a new motor pulley since the one that my jointer arrived with was not installed properly.

I removed the 2 set screws and rectangular key, but do not know how to remove the pulley from the shaft. Their “help” line is closed so I was wondering if anyone has done this procedure.

I would really appreciate some info since this jointer has been a paper weight since before Christmas.

The best way is to use a pulley puller like this one:

They are very inexpensive at Harbor Freigth.
If not if you have the room you can try to gently tap on the rear of the pulley to get it out,it probably will not work as the pulley should be tight on the shaft.
You also could try to pry out but again the result is uncertain.
Applying a little heat first would help.

How to use a puller:

while there are ways to convince a pulley to come off, a pulley puller is the safest method to keep the pulleys and most importantly the shaft intact and undamaged.

they are available at different stores
