MechMinutes Video: Types of Pulley Mounting

TIMING BELTS & PULLEYS PT. 5: TYPES OF PULLEY MOUNTING | MECH MINUTES | MISUMI USA

So far in our MechMinutes: Timing Belts & Pulleys series, you’ve learned how to identify the appropriate belt for your application, and the basics of setup, including tensioning, alignment, and typical wear signs.
