shaft

no not the film

does anybody know anywhere which can supply a shaft for a large sawbench.Something about 18-24 ins long with a left hand thread to accept a 30mm bore blade, two bearings in mounting housings and a flat pulley for a tractor pulley belt or even a v pulley. Thanks

a bit vague suggest tractor repair shop, scrap yard ,and a local with a lathe could make the shaft best i can do with the description

thats the problem i've already got a shaft but to get the old blade off the local blacksmith had to use a lot of heat consequence being some of the thread is damaged and also the diameter is larger than the bore on the new blade.
Yes i could get it repaired locally but the man won't commit himself to any sort of price and i fear it could be expensive. I have seen a new one on ebay in Germany which with carriage is over 100 . I  just thought there must be somebody in this country who sells them.

an engineer could drill the hole bigger and retap the thread then you would have to check the balance of the shaft on rotation .What make is the machine?

If you cant get satisfaction with this, try West Engineering services (or something) in Paisley, Scotland.
sod

Wish you were here we could fix/change that to fit also we can get some parts around to do that but no use at all to you sorry, try tractor and implemint places or as said tractor recyclers.

Have you tried the engineering place in Chwilog?

I have had a few odds & sod made up there for reasonable money.

sorted, remembered i had a share in a saw bench with Blind Pugh gave him a ring he was'nt using it so fetched it home. Job done
