I think that is the way my grandfather had his set up, I clearly remember the motor assembly being mounted on a hinge plate that he had welded onto the frame. I think though for ease of converting it back and not having to weld to much I will go with the pulley system above. I just think that method will be easier for me as I don't have a welder right now and dont really want to make too many serious changes to the way the saw is set up so that if I need to convert it back to wood I can. I am thinking of setting up some sort of quick release on the pulley that drives the saw and have another motor with the original pulley mounted up on it so I can just pop one belt off and put the other one on and swith plugs to convert it right back to the originla configuration.
