Thanks for the drawing gomachv I have foud that the Procat slipper assembly has the same layshaft but just uses a different slipper assembly. I now have the layshaft, slipper plates and nut all I need is the spring have you got the length and width of that so I can find one of them please :mrgreen:

Sorry, my slipper did not have the proper spring, nut, bearing ect. They had made random parts fit, but they didn't fit well.

I would expect however that a stealth slipper spring should work fine- it's nice and short, and should be fairly easy to locate. Associated part number 6587. Don't use the locknut that comes with it though!

Still working on the lathe, not going very fast at all. If you can find a ready made one I would say go for it- I can't find anyone to machine it and I'm learning as I go

I just need to split it in half now. The shaft should begin this weekend- out of aluminum. Once I can mock it up, I will try it in steel. The cross drilling and flats will be the next big challenge, as I need to make fixtures. The schumacher slipper shaft will take a bit longer yet as it's more complex than the associated.

Well...that took a while! Finally got my pulleys. Plastic for the center roller and two aluminum for the rear drives. Now I have to do some measuring and get them to fit between the plates. The end on the plastic will be cut off, and I may have to knock down the pulley flanges as well. These have a 3/16 bore so the slipper shaft will be easier. Bearings will ride on the pulley where the setscrews are, after they are turned down to 8mm
