at 2870 RPM.
If I were to reduce speed to 1700 RPM, I'd have to increase to a 5 1/4
wheel by 2 1/2 inches deep.
I'd recommend shock mounts as an alternative to a larger wheel diameter
There are a good selection of blowers with RPM below 2000 in my Granger

and all the models listed are 3000+ RPM.
Second, I know there was a discussion some months ago about a source for
Modutec panel meters. Was that ever solved successfully? Does anyone
suggestions on other types of panel meters? I've been searching my
catalogs but it seems like several of the traditional meter suppliers
