So I have the frame of my 2x72 belt grinder built, but now Im stuck.  I am running a 1 1/2 hp 1725rpm motor and I need to know which pulleys to purchase.  I want to run a 3 step pulley set up but dont know which diameter set I need, or does it matter?  The motor has a 3/4 arbor and my drive shaft is going to be 5/8 with 2 pillow bearing blocks, or would one be sufficient?  I have everything I need to complete it except the pulleys, wheels, and shaft and Im chomping at the bits to make sparks fly!!  Please HELP!  Thanks in advance
