Added flat belt pully to my Odds And Ends engine.
« on: March 23, 2014, 01:20:09 AM »
Added a flat belt pulley and a tapered hub mount today. Thinking of building something for it to power like a buzz saw. This was my first IC engine I built back about 25 years ago and is still a nice running engine.

What will you use for a belt?

Something like a power hacksaw would work ok, you can make one that uses a junor hacksaw blade, or part, or all of a full size blade.  You would just have to scale it to suit the motor.      Ian S C

Aero is pouring parts for an ice cream machine for Ron Ginger.

Chuck I'll have to do some research and see what I can come up with.

Ian & Steve I'm still thinking saw kind of like my grand dad had that we hooked up to the old John Deere. I still have memories of that. I'm hoping some day to build a model John Deere A.

Thanks for the comments!

I just did a little looking and I think I'll take a look into these and see what they look like and if they will work.

It never would have occurred to me that anything like this is even available.  Interesting...

Doc--I have that same engine. It doesn't have enough power to run a small buzz saw---at least not one that will cut real wood. I did use it to run the sawmill that I built with a vertical reciprocating saw blade.--Brian

You will also need a much larger dia pully to work a buzz saw at a decent speed, look at the sizes on this Galloway cross cut saw, which will also reduce the mechanical advantage :(

When they get to that size its easier to make them from tube and fix to the spokes if you don't want a clutch

Strictly for looks not to cut wood just to look at
