Each journey begins with a single step (pulley)

The old pulley would NOT come off the motor and yet another tool I lack is a gear puller. Note: despite its name a hack saw can actually be used for very fine work. This is not one of those times.

Alas, the shaft on the motor is too short for the supplied set screw to bite. So here’s the set up to drill a new hole to tap. I was very pleased to discover that I not only possessed the right tap, I also had the right drill. How odd.

It has taken me long enough but I’m in a time in my life where I consistently remember to keep the part clamped after drilling so that I can use the chuck to get the tap started straight. Small victories.

I normally work so small I was reminded this morning that I never got around to procuring a larger tap wrench. Oh, well this worked just as well.

Well that’s done at least.
