McMaster Carr has sheaves.  You can get them with 
bronze or even sealed ball bearings.  For the 
1/4" cable, they are only 2" diameter however.

McMaster Carr is a great place to buy all kind of parts!

Catalog page 1316 for description and page 1317 
for the 1/4" steel and stainless steel 
sheaves.  Aluminum sheaves are used for regular 
rope and should not be used with cable (wire rope).
