   Have you tried spot drilling the shaft where the setscrews go?  I 
have done that a few times.

   I was going to respond to your other post, but I'll respond here...

   I have used aluminum pulleys in industry for years, without 
problems.  Worrying about whether the aluminum is going to cold flow in 
the next decade is fairly useless.  If the hub is thick enough to 
withstand the stress from the initial tightening, it will last a long 
time.  Worrying about a galvanic reaction between dissimilar metals is 
equally useless.  Unless your shop stays saturated in water, I wouldn't 
worry about it.  You did say that you keep your shop shirt sleeve 

   I live 1 mile from the Mississippi river, and 100 feet from a lake, 
which means that the humidity here stays high.  Everything rusts FAST!  
I DO have problems with galvanic reactions, but it's on the order of 
years, not months.
