How do you make sheaves?

The typical method for cutting sheaves is to turn a dowel on a lathe and then part-off the sheaves. If you don't have a lathe, a hole saw will do, and the groove may be produced by putting a bolt through the center to create a mandrel that can be rotated and scored. Sheaves can also be cut with a knife or axe, but this is labor-intensive work.

Sheaves are commonly used in pulleys to increase the surface area of a rope or cable so that more force can be applied when pulling on it. They are also used in belts to spread out the load over a large surface area.

There are several types of sheaves: circular, cylindrical, flat, and irregular.

Circular sheaves have holes around their outer edges, while cylindrical sheaves have holes along their entire length. Flat sheaves have holes across their surface, and irregular sheaves do not have regular holes. Irregular sheaves are best made from wood because they can't be mass-produced using a machine. They are also called "key" sheaves because they are used to attach ropes to items that cannot be removed without damage such as keys on a ring.

People often wonder how to make a circular sheave from an irregular one. It can be done by drilling very small holes all over the outside of the irregular sheave and then threading a cord through them.
