Really nice job! I'll make something similar soon. All I have at the moment is jaw pullers, would be good to have some options.

I buy NiRod locally at AIF or Praxair or Princess. Most any welding supply house should have it. AIF wants $6 ea so I don't carry a large stock.

I'm thinking a bearing separator and a steering wheel 2 slot puller would do it. You can handle tormenting and if you learn from your broken stuff not to repeat it, you are in the black.

If you think about it, a jaw puller could be made to work the same way as my makeshift backing plate. Just sayin'.

If you break the JB weld and redo it,you will have to come up with a way to fixture it to hold it straight. This will be even more important if you try to weld it with nickel rod. Best way would be to leave it attached to the saw, and be able to rotate the pulley to see if it is straight.

Chances are even if you get it to align the cracks up perfectly, some of the parts are actually bent, so you will need to actually grind a bit of metal away to actually get the outer rim straight to the inner bore again.

Other option ( although it probably is a bit too far out to do now) is to set up on a lathe to remachine it true. But if you could figure out a way to attach a grinder to the saw as it is turning, and slowly grind the pulley high spots, you might be able to grind a little bit of the wobble out.

Mind sharing a link to princess auto NiRod? I searched around but couldn't find that alloy.

Definitely going to take my time going forward and not rush repairs even if they seem simple. The good news is I don't repeat mistakes.

You guys will eventually get sick of me, decide no amount of dues are worth it then kick me out. I predict these things

Problem is I have to clamp it both vertically and horizontally (due to the way it cracked in 2 places) and I can't do both at once.

For the vertical clamping I used my drill press table which is perfect, it takes all the major warping out. For horizontal I have a massive vice I need to use (none of my clamps are big enough).

It seems almost all the warping was vertical. It can sit flush on my drill press table now. I have the horizontal crack curing now but I'm not sure it's even needed. I think when the saw blade is tightened that one would self-correct.

Will let you guys know how it goes - I'll be able to test it out tomorrow.
