Default Make a pulley wheel?

I bought a Router Crafter at a garage sale yesterday. One of the 1" pulley wheels is broken off. Sears no longer has the part. Any ideas for making one?
I do not have a lathe.
Thanks folks.

Hi Gene

I got one with the same error ,but it's a easy fix

Pull your hole saws out, punch out two 1/8" thick plastic disks and one little bit smaller,they will have a 1/4" hole in the center use that to line up the 3 disks, once you have them set, drill 3 holes for pop rivets to hold all 3 as one part..little bit of glue to make sure they stay together

Your done install it and string the cable

I have a snapshot of in my Gallery but it's easy fix so I don't think you will need the snapshot..

I thought you owned a SS MKV! In which case you have a VERY GOOD lathe.

I do own a SS MKV ! No live or dead centers, no tool rest, no tail piece, no chisels. All = no lathe. Got a nice start though.

Try SmallParts.com: The Hardware Store for Researchers and Developers or McMaster-Carr. I've dealt with both and they've got small pulleys.

Good luck!
