Hello chaps unfortunately I had a dig in whilst parting on my Myford ML7 and now when I try to take a cut deeper than 25 thou ish the pulley spins round but the gear it drives stays still. I can not see a way to fasten them back together without damaging the gear. Is there a way this can be fixed? Any help will be greatly appreciated
With thanks in advance (optimistically) David

Ring Myfords and explain the problem.
They can give you an answer on the spot, and will have parts on the way inside a day. (take credit cards too!)
0115 9254 222 will get you reception.
Might be worth slackening the belt a little? And grooving the top face of the parting tool.? Must have been quite an impressive jam up?

From the Lathes.co.uk site, may be of help
"Unfortunately the assembly does contain a weak point: the 3-step aluminium pulley is only pressed onto the sleeve - and it is not unknown for it to become loose and rotate. However, if the assembly is stripped, cleaned and the pulley secured onto the sleeve with a slight smear of low-strength Loctite all will be well.
