    Welcome to PF, Keltix.
    Your best bet might be an automotive or agricultural supply shop. Hardware stores tend toward purpose-built pulleys such as for yardlines or garage doors. My local NAPA shop has a far wider variety.

    Boating suppliers (ship chandlers) are also great for physics toys.

    Good idea, Mgb. Being in the middle of Alberta, I don't tend to think of marine-oriented things. :redface:
