Have you seen the Matt Tools was lathe that attaches to a flex shaft hand
piece. Very controlable, affordable and it works well (if the piece is
small enough to fit in the unit).
Power Soucce . . should be DC??? for portablabiltiy or a samll transformer
such as you get for most DC driven thingy today.... should provide the
right power as well as RPM???
If you use a brushed AC motor, you can use a speed controller on it. I
have used a speed controller/heat controller (for souldering irons) for
years on a small pump I used for pumping thousands of gallons of apple
cider I used to make every year when I farmed. Worked extreamly well.
Radio Shack might be able to help,,,, I don't recall where I got my unit,
but it might have been from a stained glass supplier.
