The motor is mounted between the 2 disc on the right. It drops down to tension the belt for the 2 on the right.
Then there is a second pulley on the motor. It drives the disc on the far left. It is tensioned in a horiz. motion. All three driven off one motor. Which is plenty of power believe me. Kinda like holding back a half a horse with your thumb.  lol
 Everything is 1to1. Don't need step down pulleys as it has plenty of power and  is variable speed.
I wish you could give it a whirl to rocknroll. I bet you wouldn't go back... Lord willin I'll be showing it in Calif. some day soon.   Later   Jim

Of all the things I've lost..I miss my mind the most.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

I think its awesome. Did you buy the plans to build it, or design it yourself? Are the plans available? Where did you buy the parts?
