If you want precision step pulleys with little runout, make your own. If you just want something to run and don't care about vibration or belt hop then buy Chicago Diecast through McMaster-Carr

I buy them from Wholesale Tools,

but I have a catalog and can't find them on their Web site.
MSC also has them but I had a tough time finding them on their site too. I finally found them on page 3766 of their catalog:

And McMaster-Carr has them. Go to

and search for "step pulley".

Grainger, McMaster-Carr all have pulleys. Another cheap source of quite decent pulleys at a cheaper price and often overlooked is Harbor Freight. Really! An awfull lot of their machines utilize pulleys of all types, and if you can zero in on a suitable pulley that is used on their mahcines, look up their part number from their online parts breakdowns for that machine, and order the pulley you need. I have ordered both nice cast iron and aluminum machined pulleys both single and stepped for under $8 or $10 USD, delivered. Can't much buy a die cast for that amount. Only draw bacxk is you have to do a little research to make sure it will be the size(s) you need. I usually do cast my own or machine my own from stock if I am not in a hurry. -- Visit my website:
