Chris, you could find the center of range in the shaft mark it, drill two shallow holes then mill a short slot for a square keyway. that would work as good.

That's how I ended up making a keyway slot on a shaft a while back to reposition a pully for a fan. I have wood drift cutters but for me, it was too much of a PITA to set up to cut one with them.

Just a thought or maybe another one of my strainingbrain farts.

I did consider milling a slot for the arbor, but I have used the two set screw method before and had no slip and it was much quicker. The old flat belt pulley used the same method so stayed with that method.

So apparently, this week, as I was welding a piece of 3” pipe to a truck rim, to make a vise base, others in this group, were doing likewise.........

I had to use a 6 lug truck rim and as I had only 26” of 4” pipe I inventory, I had to use 3”. The OD of the pipe was 3-5/8”, the center hole of the rim was 4-3/8”, so I had to do some serious filling. You got to love a big mig welder.

Mine still is not welded. Rain/snow for the next two days. Maybe by the end of the week.
