Well i knew it was too good to be true. Last night managed to get all my layout done on my new router top. Marked up the aluminum angle stock i bought yesterday. Thought today being a nice day i would be able to get into the shop.
Get out there ready to drll and start up the drill press and what a noise. It had been playing up before winter.
So i figured better take covers off and check it out and if necessary lube the reeves drive.
Well i found the roll pin they use on the reeves drive motor side had come out, i don't think it ever was in properly, anyhow it allows the pulley to push up and the bushing to come out of it.
So i take the whole thing apart and clean both sides and lightly oil the shafts, clean the belt and put back together.
Now the fun starts. I have been at this for the better part of the day in between breaking for lunch.
Am ready to take the whole thing and pour gas on it and have a bonfire.
Been searching for a guide on how to set this variable speed reeves drive up and cannot find anything except others having issues with reeves drives left right and center on all sorts of machine and all makes and sizes.
I would convert to a multi-tier pulley but....the shafts they have for the reeves drive are not the same as pulleys.
So can anyone direct me or throw me a bone in terms of how to set up this drive.
Thanks in advance for any help.
