    A bushing to enlarge a electric motor shaft from 5/8" to 7/8" do they make one & if so where can I find it? Thank you.

    What's the application on? Is this a bushing to go directly over the shaft (1/16" thick) or to transition from one shaft to another?

    It will be installed on a 5/8" motor shaft with a key way so that a 7/8" pulley with a key way may be mounted on the shaft to drive a wood lathe.

    I have a machine shop that I use for this stuff. Usally something like that would cost me about $10. The only bad thing is they hand me a mic and point me to the scrap pile and tell me to go dfind a peice for them to turn.

    McMaster Carr has 5/8 to 7/8 bushings. You'd have to use an abrasive wheel or some other method to cut a slot to match the keyway. They also sell stepped key stock since I'd assume the keyway in your motor shaft will be a different size than the keyway in the pulley.

    Is there something special about the pulley? Wondering if it would be better to just buy a pulley with the proper bore? Could be expensive if its a stepped pulley though.
