Hi Mike

Thanks for your request.

I am preparing to supply such devices - pulley + 3 screws FHc M6*25 in inox 316L -.

I am currently seeing with my suppliers (plastics, screws and tools).

And I think the 1rst devices would be ready in 2 or 3 weeks.

Their price will be 60 Euro without taxes per device and the postal fee in supplement.

These parts will be availabe for the whole Amel owners. You can dispatch this information.

Best regards.

Bernard Ancelle

PS : To order please send me your right address. When I will know the delivery date I will send you either the order confirmation and my bank acount number for the money transfer.

Courtesy of Jean-Luc Mertz, I have been in touch with Bernard Ancelle in France.


He is making a one piece toe pulley in PETP (polyester). They will be available for purchase in a few weeks


Bernard says :

The pulley is in one piece and thicker than original aluminum Amel one
for strength (but the core of the pulley has the same thickness as the
original one to be easily fitted).
The material is PETP which resists well to a lot of chemical products
(particularly sea water), does not absorb water, resists to UV and has
good mechanical properties.
The combination of plastics device and inox (stainless) screws would not be
subjected to corrosion as the previous one.

Bernard can supply the pulley including 3 x  M6 316L stainless bolts for 60 Euros plus postage.


You can order directly from Bernard by email :  ba at ancelle dot net


i have ordered two pulleys today.
