    Default Re: Got the lathe and yeah, does need work! (RE: Watchfixer)

    Hello Watchfixer,

    I'm a member of 119 in Belleville and our next meeting is this Sunday, April 15. We have a website for info and directions. We are planning a sale for our June meeting which will have a lot more stuff than our typical mart, I hope. Info on the June meeting should be up on our website in May. You should join a local club. I drive (car pool) from Whitby to Belleville four times a year. Our membership ranges from Whitby in the west, Bancroft in the north, and Kingston to the east. We're not big, but we're friendly. More clock oriented than watches, though. I've never seen an 8 mm collet set at our marts, but, lathes have shown up.

    Watchfixer,

    I have both a Boley and a Levin lathe. The Levin has a headstock pully that has V grooved sides and the Boley pully has a radius profile like your photo shows.

    Good Day!

    The best belt size would be between 5/32" and 7/32" but not less than 5/32".

    Ken,

    The pulley on the photo also has "V" shaped grooves, the only difference is that they are with a rounded bottom.
