I can remember some old school setups where the motor was mounted on a wood panel attached to a hinge allowing the motors weight to serve as the tensioning method.

Yeah, that’s my plan. The belt on there is a little too long, as well. I will be purchasing a segmented belt from Harbor Freight then putting the motor on a hinged board. I was just very excited to try out my new chisels and wanted to get everything set up quickly.
