I’m looking for a 3/8" hex bore sprocket or timing belt pulley.
My other requirements are 2" or smaller dia, and #25 or #35 size roller chain for the sprocket.
I already checked Mcmaster and Grainger. I couldn’t find anything.
This is for a personal project so I can’t go out an make my own without spending more money than I want to.
As far as I’ve ever seen hex broached sprockets do not exist commercially other than what AndyMark sells, which are only available in 1/2" hex (to the best of my knowledge).
You’ll probably have to broach your own, sorry man.
If ^ satisfies your conditions, I’d buy that and ask a sponsor to bore it out and broach it or do it yourself!
Darn, not what I wanted to hear. I guess i’ll just get a plain bore sprocket and weld it to the shaft.
Or take a file to the sprocket and “broach” your own. More time-consuming, certainly, but cheap.
Hex parts are nice, but I would rather just use keyshaft and keyed sprockets over welding to the shaft if hex broaching is not available.
Where are you guys located geographically? Maybe a nearby team has a broach. If you’re close to us, we do, but I don’t think we have access to it right now.
