Hi guys, I'm new here and looking for a little help figuring out if I need a key for a pulley on this machine. The saw used to belong to my brother till I helped him sell it to my buddy, now there is a problem so I feel like I should help him fix it. The motor turns a belt which then turns a pulley on the saw blade shaft, this pulley has a key way as does the shaft. There is also a set screw in the pulley right in the key-way. Does there need to be a key in this slot or does the set screw engage the slot in the shaft? Apparently, the set screw came loose and the pulley walked off the shaft, chewing itself up in the process. I was lucky enough to find a new pulley, but I'm not sure if I should use a key. Thanks for any help!...Mike

Thanks guys! I found the exact same pulley on e-bay for five bucks. Like a dummy I overlooked ordering a key, so now I'm waiting for that to arrive. I'll bring a small file to clean up the key way on the shaft as well. Thanks for all the help!...Mike
