Bronze Sheaves


Sheaves are used to allow a line or wire to make a directional change of up to 180 degrees, without chafe and with a minimum of friction. Sheaves turn on Axles, and may have Bushings installed in them to reduce working friction, or to reduce their Inside Diameter (ID). Primary usage of Bronze Sheaves is found in Traditional applications for replacement and aesthetic purposes.

Rig-Rite stocks a variety of Bronze Sheaves and most are listed below, but many other sizes have been produced over time. Please note that if a Sheave listed here meets your principal dimensions of Outside Diameter (OD) & Width, it is frequently possible to modify the Inside Diameter (ID) by either drilling it out to a larger size, or bushing it down to a smaller one. If a Bronze Sheave you require is not listed here, please contact us specifying dimensions (OD, width, and ID), and application.

Sheaves in other materials are listed separately, See Rig-Rite Sheaves.
