Most industrial supply houses either have them in stock or can gwt them for you.

Yes you should need the shaft diam and the step pulley sizes.

It should not make s lot of difference for you. Now ,if You were used to using the tool on a regular basis, then You would see a difference on Your speeds. Since You have not used it as of yet., You should be just fine

It looks like a close enough match. If you have a bearing supply store in your area, bring your pulley to them, & they should be able to match you up.

Looks like your making good progress. Any consideration to replacing the bearings?

i cleaned the bushings up with some plumbers sanding cloth, the screen type that you sand pipe with before ya soldier them up….i taped the end of a piece to a 3/8” dowel and with my drill i wound it up till it just barely fit the 3/4” bore….i more or less honed it out till smooth and was able to get the shaft back in the headstock….with the shaft in place there’s no slop up and down and it spins smoothly right now….what kind of oil would be best in them oil cups on top, and does the bushings just soak up what ever oil goes in there to lube the shaft….......................bob
