Yeah, they aren't cheap. But what is these days?

Thanks, I did check RigRite's web site. I'll call them tomorrow just in case, but they didn't list anything exactly the same. Very close, they have them 1/8 inch narrower then I need.

And thanks for the link to Zepher works, if Scott ends up not being able to refurbish them I'll definitely check them out. Right now though, I would prefer not to add $400 to this project if I can avoid it.

I was finally able to get the bottom sheaves out today, after hours with PB Blaster, heat, and lots of tapping. These seem more ordinary, 2 inches diameter, .5 inch wide with a 3/8 inch axle.

So with Scott's kind help, it looks like I'll be able to pull this off (knock knock).

RigRite does not answer any questions on the phone. They really don't have much of a "customer service". They are good if you know exactly what you want - otherwise "fuggedaboutid".

Hm, maybe I'll take a ride down there. They are about 20 minutes from where I live by car...
