questions on XL Timing Belts

Some questions on XL Timing Belts, referenced at this page: https://sdp-si.com/ss/PDF/26502043.PDF
1) It says the insert is aluminum, knurled. Does this mean the * bore * is
knurled or do they mean that the "interface" where the insert fits into the plastic pulley body is knurled ?
2) What is "Spot Drill" referring to ? Just means where the hole for the set screw is drilled ?
Thanks ! JCD

The outer of the insert will be knurled for good adhesion to the plastic. The bore will be smooth.

?? Dunno...is not the hole for the set screw. Maybe a spot mark for second hole if you want to drill one to put another screw in?

The pulley itself is polycarbonate - a rather soft plastic material. The aluminum insert, to which the shaft is affixed, is knurled so that it "grips" the polycarbonate material. You don't want the metal insert to slip within the plastic pulley.

That's exactly what that is. A spot drill is also distinct from the familiar twist drill, in that it is like a rotary shaper, without the twists to extract cut-away material. A shallow cut (as opposed to a hole, all the way through) should be made in the shaft at the indicated location for the set screw to engage.

You could ask these questions directly to the source (sdp-si) for truly authoritative answers.
