How to convert flat belt lathe to v-belt
I have a very old Greenlee wood lathe, which is powered by an electric motor, a 4-position pulley, and a flat leather belt. The flat belt often slips on the flat pulley, and I am interested in converting to a variable speed elctric motor, with a v-belt pulley. Do you have variable speed (400 - 4000 rpm), single phase, 1HP electric motors that would work for this application? Also, with the current set-up, I would need a pulley with a large diameter arbor (approx 2 inches) on the lathe side.
