I tried it out. Seems to work just fine. Although in the textbooks it says the axes should be offset slightly toward lining up on the drive side, in my test they are on center. Even the though the belt is coming in on the pulley at an angle that would be gross misalignment (~5 degrees) in a normal setup, I don't see any untoward side effects. I ran it for half an hour and checked belt and pulley temp and they were barely over room temp.
(note the mill has nothing to do with this, it was just a convenient place to bolt things to for a test)

I imagine we could, or you could stop by and play with them
