Looks good.

I’ve also read that you want the drum speed at about 1700 rpm and, of course, most motors run at 3400. Is there any reason why you can’t put a larger pulley on the drum so the drum runs slower than the motor?

Very good design. What grit is the paper?

Did you build the drum? What did you use for the drum?
