I am in need of a spindle pulley that has an index head integral to it
for an old [ 60's vintage] rockwell delts lathe.  I stripped out the
threads on the existing pulley.  Any sources or ideas on repair would
be appreciated.  Thanks,  George

You've done the obvious, but expensive thing?

Delta might have it, otherwise, pose the question as well on the old ww
machinery forum.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I don't know that lathe in detail, but the only threads I can picture on a
pulley would be the setscrew threads.  If that's what is stripped, I can
suggest three options for repair:
1.)  Tap out the stripped threads to a larger size.
2.)  Repair with a Helicoil.  This replaces the missing metal with stainless
steel threads, which are actually better than new.
3.) Drill a hole in a different spot on the hub, and tap for the original
setscrew size.

I prefer the Helicoil method, but, unless you already have the repair kit,
it is easily the most expensive.

I missed the original thread, so don't know if this has been mentioned or not.  Delta has quite a
few parts for at least some of these lathes.  They sent me an owners manual at no charge.  Kinda
makes you want to deal with a company that does things like that.
