Greetings from the communist state of California.
I have searched the forums already for an answer to this question but cant seem to find a solid answer. hopefully you all can help me out.
I am in the process of building a homemade tumbler and just ordered a washing machine motor off of ebay to power the thing. Ill post a link to it:http://www.ebay.com/itm/262857670646
This motor is rated around 17000 RPMs so I know I have to use some sort of pulley system in order to slow it down to a reasonable speed.
My question is... How do I go about doing this? I know virtually nothing about motors or electricity, but do have a decent amount of common sense haha. Any help of pointers would be greatly appreciated. If it helps, the diameter of the actual tumbler tube is 6 inches.
Thank you all in advance.
