I am just about to pitch an old sewing machine, but it has a good foot
pedal and motor (l/8 hp). I wonder if any of you have ideas about
what could be done with the motor. I have a couple huge Highland Park
grinders, saws, and tumblers, Big I have. small I would prefer, so
if you have ideas here…
It would be great to find a new use for it, in polishing something or
cleaning. I am considering a brass brush at the sink to clean
investment from casting. Would this wee motor do it?
Actually, I have a whole stach of motors. It seems I have a genetic
flaw. I can’t throw away a perfectly good one. I bought an estate
that included an astounding number of them in addition to what i had.
It must be genetic, for as fortune would have it, I recently
’inherited’ my grandpa’s polishing motor!
So you see my problem. I can’t dispose of it, and actually, I need
all sorts of ideas about what to do with motors… If I knew
how, it would be fun to build animated displays but I haven’t a clue
as to how to start…
Perhaps someone knows what size motor is needed for a home-made
table saw? draw bench? paint mixer? investment mixer? What powers a
beadblaster?? Anybody have some ideas??? Please send replies to me
directly. THANKS!! Jeannie
