It was very competent turning in the Pink Triangle and Clearaudio platters I have on hand. I wanted to have a local machine shop make a pulley for me. Having read Mark Kelly's posts about belt creep and all those Poisson formulas, I think I'd avoid a rubber belt and use a casette tape as a belt. Can someone share the formula I need to use to know the size of the pulley?

(100/3 x Ddisc )/ Rpm of floppy motor = D pulley

it can't be so easy ........

Little confused over the calculations, Ddisc; is this the diamater of the platter your driving with the motor? I know i'm a dunce, but i never done this before.

Yes, Ddisc is the diameter of the platter.

To make this straight: The diameter is inversely proportional to the RPM.

Motor pulley Dia Dm / Platter Dia Dp = Platter RPM Rp / Motor RPM Rm

Motor pulley Dia Dm = Dp x Rp / Rm
