    Old pulley maybe?

    Found this near Charleston, SC it looks to me like part of an old pulley maybe from a hay barn or something?
    Interested in suggestions.

    It measures about 10 inches across the picture below shows both sides.

    I do believe it is the remains of a pulley.

    Does this "pulley" have a groove, if yes is the groove round or sorta V shaped?

    Round would indicate it was use for a rope, V shaped would indicate it was used for a V-belt.

    Also does it seem to have a "keyway" in the shaft hole, or a pin hole to lock it on the shaft?

    Round would indicate it was use for a rope, V shaped would indicate it was used for a V-belt., it does not appear to have any keyway

    The area on the outside appears to have a groove but it is neither round nor V shapped, pretty much flat, and no keyway visible.

    A shape like this is what I'm getting from your description \_/, this shape would be for a V-belt, which is most likely an automotive application, what the pulley looks to be to me is a pressed on power steering pulley, but it could be from many other types of applications other than automotive.


    This image is of a pressed on power steering pulley, almost all modern era power steering pulleys no longer use a V-belt type belt.

    Could have been used for a cable. Logging maybe? On our plow trucks we have pulleys that look identical to that for lifting the front of the wings. They use a bronze bushing, I can't tell if that has a bushing in the middle or not. I am guessing it is left over from a block and tackle used for logging.

    A good closeup photo of the best edge section would help. What is the diameter of the center hole? Any threads or a bushing? Grease fitting or oil scupper?

    so the surface looks to be 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide with no rim on the inside . the center hole almost looks like it was cut of with a cutting torch. i was thinking a metal wheel .i will look to see what i can find.

    i believe it is a wheel off a hay trolly. these trollys hung from the ridge on a beam, it had 4 wheels with 1 rim on the outside that straddled the beam with pullys below that had ropes running thru them attached to a hay hook that you could lower and raise , the trolly would roll along the beam from 1 end of the barn to the other to move sheathes or bales of hay.

    This example posted is a die cast wheel of nonferrous alloy metal. Most likely this came from the drive shaft of an electric motor on small machinery, to carry the power belt to drive whatever function the machine performed. Pulleys and trolleys require greater strength in the function of a wheel type mechanism, therefore these will generally be steel or iron in composition, rather than die cast alloy.

    CC this wheel he ha posted looks cast iron to me, with the rust and the over all darkness of the exposed metal .
    maybe the poster could try a magnet to see if it is iron or non ferrous ?
    not trying to disagree and i hope this is not seen as being rude to one of the great minds on here , because i have alot of respect for you guys. but i also want to see this item IDed correctly.
    sorry to ramble , just feel i have to defend my self if i disagree with some one since i am a new blood
