Default Paperwood Pulleys

I know there are companies that rebuild these but has anyone done their own? Seems like if there was a way to fabricate the many layers needed out of something it could be done. Just curious.
I just got done reading the history of the Rockwood company and saw that they were actually bought out by the current paper pulleys company, interesting read. Looks like for afety reasons a guy should really go with them on rebuilding a paperwood pulley.

I believe that the paper pulley co is the same outfit as Rockwood. The employees of the pulley division bought out their division and separated from the big corporate main co., as the head management decided to close out that somewhat obsolete technology division. Likely, if we want that group to survive for the future help in our hobby, we should keep them busy with our patronage.

I had Paper Pulleys inc. do the pulley on my Keck Gonnerman gas tractor. They did a nice job. See post 4 on this thread.

good to see they are still in business. i guess one could be made from layers of plywood glued and then turned in a wood lathe. I never done it but it looks it would work

This was a paper pulley replaced by layers of plywood glued and bolted together.

We had paper pulleys do one for our 20-40 Case. We were in a hurry and needed it now. They delivered and it fit as well as if Case would have sold it in 1918. It was perfect bolts holes matched our hub and everything (they did not have our hub).

Are you saying that they already had one in stock for your model case?

I believe they still have the old original patterns for most applications.

I have a friend that have made a couple of pulleys out of hardboard and I trued them up on the lathe. If I remember it took more than a 4x8 sheet to do a 16 inch pulley.

Would be interesting to see how they made them, before I knew you could order them new, I was going to take masonite and use Gorilla Glue and an 80 ton press to make a cube and then lathe it down.
