Synchronous drive components improve performance of motor-driven systems, increasing energy efficiency and lowering maintenance costs. Synchronous drive allows adjustment of speed and torque while connecting mechanically rotating components; belts and pulleys utilize teeth to prevent slippage and unwanted speed variations.

Would you buy this item again? Undecided
I'm fairly new to designing with timing pulleys and belts, but was disappointed to discover there is no set screw or any other way to attach this the SPB40L050BF-500 timing pulley to the 1/2 inch shaft it's designed for. Other websites clearly state when an additional component is needed, but this website did not... The timing pulley we bought from another company for a previous project came with a tapped hole and set screw. Please add a note that these pulleys are not ready to use, offer a fitting to mount them, or something to call attention to this. Thanks!
