    I got mine from mscdirect.com, but I'm sure McMaster sells them also. They are the XL style pulleys.

    Default indexer/lathe combo for under $1K

    Brad, I decided to use gears to drive my indexer but other then that is just like yours. Works really well, This is a rocking horse leg I just finished made from western red ceder. It has 5:1 gear ratio and a 400oz hold nema 23 stepper motor.
    Thanks for your help

    Donald - That looks good! How did you model the horse leg? Artcam?

    No, a friend of mine son is a 3D artist. I didn't use the lathe motor on mine, I figured the indexer could do anything I needed. I ordered a nova chuck for it today. Thanks for the help I have be wanted to do this for a while.

    Default indexer/lathe combo for under $1k

    Just wanted to post a link to my indexer cutting gears. I use to cut my gears on a knee mill but the router table works really smooth and a lot faster.

    The mount was made from 1/4" aluminum plate and the slates that the lathe is mounted to is T-Slotted slates from a Gerber Router. Yes that's one of five grandkids. I think one might even be a future botter.
