Are you making 4 grinders? Why so many belts and bearings?

I recall something about a belt sander for knife making.  What else would take so many bearings.  The belts could be sanding belts?

I'll admit the 4 belts have me a bit stumped, but since they sell that motor in a gear motor style, I have to assume something with high RPM.
No speed controller, so must be either constant RPM or going to a lot of trouble for a 4 speed system using the belts.
I'd guess a variable speed what-cha-ma-callit.

Don't sweat getting old, you'll still do dumb crap, just slower.

An Optimist will tell you the glass is half full, the pessimist half empty, the engineer will say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Lol, okay, fair enough. But it was the quantities that may have been throwing people off. Certainly took me for a ride when reading it was a 24v DC motor but 4 belts.
Since, just the day before, I took the belt cover off a wood chipper that had a 4 belt pulley drive, and thought, wow, that must be a serious 24v motor to require 4 belts. Haha.
