The sheave may be drilled and tapped to accept a bushing or it may be furnished already bored and keyed for a specific shaft diameter and keyseat. Bushings feature greater shaft holding power, easier installation and removal, and some degree of interchangeability because each bushing size is available in several shaft diameters.
Finally, after you've made your sheave selection, remember to check whether the sheaves or bushings will accommodate the shaft diameters and keyseat dimensions of your drive.

cutters & keys, insert drills & drilling inserts, hand tools, face mills, insert end mills & milling, end mills, drills & drill blanks as well as other cutting tools for metal, plastic, glass, wood and other applications.
