A sheave or pulley wheel is a grooved wheel that is used to hold a belt, rope, or wire rope and is incorporated into the pulley. The grooved wheel spins on the bearing or axle that is found inside the pulley’s frame. Grooves are long and narrow indentations that are made on materials, and they guide and allow other materials or parts to move. In a sheave, a groove receives the belt, cable, or rope, and grooved pulleys only allow a clockwise belt direction. A QD Bushed Sheave (3V Section
