Congrats! Really very well done.

The Congress sheave data is here (just googled it):
http://www.congressdrives.com/a-groove-pulleys.html

Didn't expect a 10" sheave to look like a miniature ropeway bullwheel. :)

BTW Do you use a MIG welder (more formally GMAW but I can't get used to that abbreviation)?

Here are some pictures of my own machine shop. The sheaves i make . These particular sheaves have a deeper groove then the rest of the sheave as these in the industry are known as guide sheaves. These sheaves placed at the front of the sheave train weather a compression or a tower, help align the cable to carry on to the next set of sheaves. These type of sheaves are very common on real ropeways.
