Hi Michael
Have a look at the Tamiya Educational range  https://www.tamiyausa.com/items/geniuseries-educational-kits-50/educational-construction-38000/pulley-unit-set-70121

These can be set up as either driving or idler pulleys by varying the inserts.

Printers have a nice assortment of parts also: other than pulleys there are screws and a great slider (where the printer head rides), small motors, etc. NEVER throw away ANYTHING before ripping it apart down to the last bit...

Thanks for the info.  I think I'll try the HO wheel sets first and see how that turns out.  What's the worse that can happen?

I never throw anything away.  Drives the wife nuts sometimes, but it's great to make something out junk.

I did actually buy an 'inline' rather than 'angled' version of this motor/gearbox also.

It could have worked pretty good in the truck as well...

...IF any of the worm-gears I had could have been drilled out to 3mm...

...which they could not. :f:


:P

Kinda 'lucked into' the 'faux chain-drive' really.

It does look pretty good under the truck though. :bg:

Hi Michael :wave:


This is the link to where I got the 8mm & 10mm rolls/pulleys from :-

Machined Brass Miniature Pulleys








This dude has quite an eclectic selection of small metal parts.

Some quite unusual & useful stuff. :shocked:


:moose:
