Very well engineered! I just built and installed  this on my  Ridig bandsaw and it works great!. I bought pulleys here and there, so I would recommend anyone that is not buying  pulleys from the vendor the instructions advise, make the shafts longer than 6 inches. 7 inches worked for me. I would recommend this conversion to anyone.
