A Few Questions:
I recently made a V-belt pulley but
with some difficulty because I had
trouble setting up a 20 degree angle
on the inside surface closest the
lathe head. I suppose I could turn
the pulley around but then it might
not run true.
Anyway, seems like I should be able
buy an off-the-shelf tool bit with
a snubbed 40 degree included angle.
Just plunge a certain depth and I'm
done. Is there such an animal?
Second, I could go for a smaller
belt but can't seem to find anything
smaller than 2L. Where should I look?
And if I can't go smaller, how come?
