Default Themac J15 toolpost grinder info

Hi, Is anyone able to share the #2 and #3 pulley dimensions for a vintage Themac J15 grinder?
Is there a source for the manual for this model or is a pdf available?
Themac website does not have the information.
Thanks. I appreciate any help you can offer.
Tim

I had to call them once. Not about a vintage grinder specifically, but just some general questions. It seemed like pretty tight knit shop, I would be surprised if they couldn't answer your question and/or provide resources.

Thanks for recommending the easy solution!
In a very quick email reply Themac shared a copy of an old catalog page which includes pulley sizes, wheel sizes, spindle information, dimensions and other interesting info.
As we know, the J15 is obsolete and parts are no longer available thru them.
Pdf attached for anyone interested.
Peter, thanks again.
Tim
