    I know that blade inbalance leads to earlier bearing failure but what about pulley wobble?
    What about belt life?
    I have 1/16" wobble

    1/16 inch wobble on what pulley? What does the pulley run? Cast iron, steel? Which way does it wobble? Are you having issues with this pulley? Depending on the size and type of pulley - I don't think 1/16 is much.
