Here’s where the fun begins. Starting at the bottom, the electric motor reduces motor speed by using a small pulley (1) to drive a larger one (2). This isn’t enough, so Candoff devised a jackshaft system to use a second small-drive pulley (3, hidden in this photo) to drive a second large pulley (4). Candoff also added an idler pulley (5) that does not affect the ratio but is necessary to maintain belt tension.
