Default Erasing vibration...

Hey all,

So I still have vibration in a shop made disk sander, it's on a mandrel, and I have tried truing the disk, pulleys, using link belt too. Everything is lined up straight, and have rubber pads under the mandrel and pillow blocks. I've heard of machined steel pulleys (using cheapo pot-metal ones now), but would like to know if anyone knows or can recommend where to get them. Probably 2" on the motor w/1/2" bore, and either 2, 4, or 6" and 5/8" bore on the shaft. Thanks for any leads...
