  • Lathe indexing

    Hello everyone.

    I have a Ridgid lathe with an indexing system built in. Unfortunately it has 36 increments 10 degrees apart. This means that, when you use a drill mounted on the toolrest to make holes for inlays you can't make them 45 degrees apart (or i5 degrees either for that matter). Do any of you know of a replacement pulley that has only 24 increments at 15 degrees that could replace this pulley? The pulley is a four sheave that goes from 2" up to 4" and it has a 3/4" bore. I have contacted Ridgid directly, I have called Craftsman since they offered the same product and I have been unable to find an alternative pulley.
    Thank you in advance for taking time to respond to this query.
