Default Rudder Servo Pulley?

Hello,
could someone please tell me where I can get the pulleys from.
I will be setting up a plane with multiple rudder servos but would like to use pulleys with the servos. This way if a servo fails the other rudder servos would still work.

I think your looking for something like this. http://www.swbmfg.com/2x-self-adjusting-servo-trays/

These trays use pulleys to connect the servos and are still functional if one servo locks up. They will lose some range of movement, but the plane should still be controllable to get on the ground safely.

Thank you that is what I would like to set up however, I would like to buy the pulleys separate instead of the whole unit. Do you know where I can get the pulleys?

No I've never seen the pulleys individually, you would have to build something custom yourself.

Why not just call SWB and ask if you can buy some pulleys from them?

That's a good idea, I bet they would hook you up.

I used pulleys from the local hardware store. They were plastic with ball bearings, if memory serves me correctly, I think they were replacements for sliding doors. Found them with the nut, bolt and screws.
