Walker - turner has been out of business for a long time. You should be able to move the motor mount toward the spindle to loosen the belt and change without removing the pulley. hope this helps you.

Refer to the picture below. Loosen the locknuts (the one on the right side of the drill is shown, there is another on the left side). Use the lever to move the motor toward you, thereby loosening the drive belt(s). Open the top cover to expose the belt(s) and sheaves (most people incorrectly call them pulleys). You might have one belt and two sheaves, or you have two belts and three sheaves. The drill will go fastest when the belt is on the biggest motor sheave and the smallest sheave on the drill spindle. Of course the opposite sizes apply for the slowest speeds. Make sure the belt uses a pair of sheaves that are at the same height as each other (the belt has to stay in one plane). Now tighten the belt(s) by pushing the lever pretty hard away from you, and while holding it with your right hand tighten the left side locknut with your left hand. Now tighten the right locknut. Close the cover. ----- OK, so now you know how to CHANGE speeds, what about drilling glass? This can be tricky. You must use a pretty slow speed (maybe the slowest, depending on the size of hole you are drilling. And you must keep the spot you are drilling flooded with water to keep the glass cool. And you must apply pretty gentle pressure. And the use of a drill bit intended for drilling glass helps a lot. And don't try the first hole in something expensive! Practice on something disposable first. Take your time. AND WEAR SAFETY GLASSES!
