Use a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and many other power transmitting applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to greatly help provide easy installation and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an interior screw to help drive the bushing into the shaft, while a split taper includes a flange and an integral on the bushing to help provide more drive.
L – Space required to tighten bushing or loosen to remove hub with puller using brief hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – brief hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed required hub diameter is usually for reference only. Severe conditions may require larger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller sized hub may be satisfactory. Inquire about specific application.
We can also supply unique bushings manufactured from other machinable components. Please inquire
External key on most sizes for positive drive and better torque carrying capabilities
Double-split barrel for positive clamping
Solid flange to keep concentric bores
Available in “, metric, and spline bores. Bore range from 3/8″ to 10”
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are used to attach pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless construction is ideal for food and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.
This Taper-Lock bushing is suitable for use with same-type sheaves, sprockets, and pulleys in power transmission applications that require synchronous rotation. The carbon metal bushing provides strength and resistance to wear and includes installation bolts and washers. Taper-Lock sheaves, sprockets, and pulleys (not included) can be found in a number of outside diameters to match this Taper-Lock bushing, enabling the precise selection of the number of drive tooth or grooves. This bushing is suitable for use in a wide range of mechanical and digital adjustable drives, including auto and printing industries.

Basic bearings provide low-friction sliding contact for relative motion between elements of a machine. They will be the simplest kind of bearing, with no rolling components, and there are three fundamental types of basic bearings: radial simple bearings (also called sleeve bearings or bushings) to aid rotating or reciprocating shafts, thrust bearings (also known as washers) to support axial loads on shafts, and linear bearings to aid and guide the movement of parts in a straight line. Flanged sleeve bearings possess a flange on one end to aid axial loads. Spherical basic bearings are radial bearings that allow for angular misalignment of the shaft. Plain bearings are manufactured from durable, low-friction materials such as sintered or cast bronze alloys, plastic-type material, or a combination of a steel shell and a plastic material bearing surface. They may be lubricated externally or by a lubricant embedded in the bearing material. Plain bearings are found in automobiles, construction and mining apparatus, textile manufacturing products, and robotics, among others.
The maximum bore is supplied with a standard ANSI/AGMA 9002-B04 or ISO 286-2 keyway.
Taper Lock Bushing mounting screws could be either ” (UNC) or metric (BSW) and care should be taken to select the proper hub part number.
Taper Lock Busings are a item of Baldor Dodge and so are not included with Lovejoy coupling hubs.
Maximum bores size and torque capacities are per Dodge specifications and Lovejoy is not responsible for the accuracy of the values listed in accordance with bore size and torque capacity.
Split Taper Bushings. Split-taper bushings are accustomed to mount sprockets, pulleys, and couplings onto shafts. They have a tapered, split body that locks the bushing down onto the shaft, prevents it from slipping during operation, and transfers more torque.
All reborable bushings are stocked
without sawsplit to facilitatere-machining.
Sawsplit must be made in bushing to allow it to compress for proper gripping of the shaft.
Adapters for TAPER-LOCK bushings are recommended for make use of where it is far more convenient to straight bore than to drill, tap and taper bore hubs to accommodate bushings. The adapter is certainly a gray iron, taper-bored sleeve whichfits in to the straight bore of a hub. The bushing simply fits inside the adapter which is certainly tapped for the bushing screws. When tightening the locking screws, adapter is usually extended against the hub bore contracting the bushing tightly upon the shaft.
Ever-Power offers an intensive selection of energy absorbing elastomeric isolators that limit the transmission of structure-borne vibration and impacts. Our items are designed for simple use and a multitude of orientations in compression, shear and slanted angle loading. While economical, these products are made of quality rubber, silicone, Neoprene and steel materials that enable support for the proper amount of load for every app. Filter through our in-depth product listing of elastomeric products including bottom taper bore bushing china mounts, cup mounts, bumpers, bushings and grommets to get the right solution for your application.
Use a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and many other power transmission applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings include a completely split design to help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an interior screw to greatly help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper includes a flange and a key on the bushing to help provide more drive.
L – Space necessary to tighten bushing or loosen to eliminate hub with puller using brief hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – brief hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed needed hub diameter can be for reference only. Severe conditions may necessitate bigger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller sized hub may be satisfactory. Inquire about specific application.
We can also supply special bushings made of other machinable materials. Please inquire
