I have been perusing the forum for Jackshaft setups on my new ( to me ) 3400.
I was wondering if anyone has setup a Jackshaft with 2 cone pulleys on either end and another on the motor? This appears to be an easier way to setup a drive with multiple ranges ( maybe too many ). I happen to have a couple of extra cone pulleys and thought this might work better than having to exchange out the drive pulley for a high and low speed. If anyone knows of a better setup for the motor side I would welcome any comments. I am looking to turn bowls and therefore would like the slower speeds more than faster. I have included a diagram to show what I am thinking.
