sheaves wanted but not by 10s

Post by johnstockdale »

Does anyone know of a supplier that sells sheaves singly? The ones I've found usually want me to buy 10 of each. I'm looking for RWO initially.

Hi John

I got some spare individual Selden sheaves from All Spares, Tamar Building, Queen Annes Battery, Plymouth, PL4 0LP Tel: +44(0)1752 266766

Some how I doubt RWO sheaves are available singly, cheaper just to replace the block probably, as they are nothing special in quality terms.

All the best

Colin

Thanks Colin. I'll check that out. I've one small one broken on the mainsheet pulley set and two on the vang pulley so a bit more expensive as a unit I suspect. Just goes to show taking the sheets off to wash them reveals maintenance issues that are difficult to spot otherwise.

Hi John. I bought Barton plain bearing (nylon) sheaves (3 off) from my local chandler without any problems. If you have problems contact Barton on
01227 792979 and they can tell you stockists near you. Best of luck. Chris.
