    Go for it Keith! Not only for the regular posters that might upgrade but for the lurkers that might benefit.

    Slippage is no problem with the link belts we used.

    You want to get the sprocket as centered as possible..
    20171118_194022.jpg I use this for a template for a larger piece of metal I have cut, and weld it to the reel.. 20171118_193741.jpg
    I use this motor..
    20171118_194037.jpg
    You will have to get a solenoid and 25amp breaker..

    Then make sure your sprockets are lined up.. Watch while you turn the reel to make sure the sprocket stay aligned all the way around. If they don't, add or take washers out between the sprocket and reel..
