I was at LV the other week and picked up a real scoop i just could not resist. In fact if this gets the nod here i might pick up another to make a buffing station.
Here is the motor, used but tested selling for $12 in store only.
Did not know they carried them but on the way home stopped at the local HW were i had seen the mandrel carried ( could have got it at LV for the same price) and it was a perfect fit on the shaft. That was my big concern when i saw the motor.
So got home and took the honing wheel off my grinder, been wanting to do this since i put it on, you need the grinder to be other way round for the honing wheel to rotate away from you and it makes the darn switch end up on the other side. I felt this had the making of a safety hazard and was not conducive to setting the grinder in place without a lazy susan.
Motor is 110v low on the HP 1/6 th only and slow speed 1725 or 1735.
So what do you guys think will it do and will it do as a buff with a mandrel and pully drive connected.
By the way for the honing wheel i plan on putting a box round the back like Stu has shown here except not exactly the same but something to keep the splatter down.
Comments and suggestions will be very appreciated.
