With the right attachment for example ;)

You can get pulleys with grub screws, press on fittings, glue on fittings......
I could go on for hours but why bother if there are no details provided....

Clean is with some alcohol, And then glue some Epoxy. That should work well.

I drill or grind a tiny slot for a piano wire to help Loctite hold the shaft pulley...

What are you attaching to the shaft.

Most pulleys and gears are press fitted.
