I like that idea, using the top of the column to mount the intermediate pulley. Been waffling over how to put a third pulley on my own drill press but never thought of that.
As for adjustment of the front belt, wonder if the intermediate pulley axle might be in an eccentric bushing in the column? That might give some adjustment to the front belt length, then bring the back one up to suit. Just a thought.
