whats up /diy/!

i got a washing machine motor today (friend replaced his, and i ripped the motor out of it on the way to the dump, and ive figured out how to wire it to run)
but heres where i need help
how can i turn this in to a kick ass little belt sander?
ive got some wood working tools, and some metal working tools (welder, bench grinder, hack saws, drill press, etc.)
what i have for wood working
a lathe, hand saws, jig saws, hand held power sander things, a drill press, a dremel, hand drill, and some other odds and ends
for metal i have an arc welder (my welds are not pretty as can be but they're strong enough to hold a pick axe together) tap and die set, a large stack of files, bench grinder, drill press, a metal cutting circular saw, a dremel, and a small forge

ive got a small stack of scrap metal (steel and aluminum, mostly pipes, rods and angle stuff)
and ive got hella wood

Build frame, attach pulleys, add belt, profit

Have some inspiration http://woodgears.ca/strip_sander/index.html

generally washing machine motors are a bit too heavy for their strength to make great handheld power tools, but are good for small stationary machines.

yeah a small stationary one was my plan running something like a 2x36 inch belt, maybe 3 or 4x 36
i think 1/3 horse will be enough for that
>>
maybe i could make two rollers that just spin freely by tacking some ball bearings (ive got some sitting around) inside a chunk of pipe? maybe i could use a forcner bit to drill through some 4x4 about centered, then carefully turn some wooden wooden ones?
or maybe i could epoxy them inside some pvc?
