Axworthy help using washing machine motor?

707 1
Tried and failed for the last 2 years with an Axworthy. I have a great washing machine motor. it turns at 1650 rpm, so that's way too fast for a direct drive. Any advice or know how?

Usually they have some sort of pulley arrangement on them to get the rpms low enough to work. I've seen some that used a wiper motor , but they were for a relatively short run. I don't have it here , but there are plenty of online calculators to find the size pulleys you would need.
