 Gregor, you can purchase a variable speed pulley from any good electric motor supply company. You then will need to mount your motor on a moveable base and you will be able to get your polish wheel speeds way down if so desired. The old Raytech cab machines and some Covington machines came with the variable speed pulleys and they work great. My Raytech 18" saw also uses a variable speed pulley on the power feed and it seems to be a superior way to infinitely vary speeds. I have both the old Raytech machine in 8" and a Titan, and I really prefer the Raytech due to the variable speed capacity. Does anybody else prefer the variable speed machines to the Titans and Genies? I also prefer the constant water feed to the "spitters" of the Genie type machines. The artificial chamois cloths are available at most auto parts stores and if one wants commercial grade ones they can be found there or in stores that supply automotive body shops and dealerships.
