Purchased a small motor while back and now want to make a double end buff.
Went looking at a local auto place here similar to harbor freight but without as many tools.
Found pillow block bearings and shaft etc but when i totaled it all up did not make sense buying components.
Remembered LV had these. Which one would you go for if you were making a buffing machine.
What is the smallest HP motor you think would do the job. I have begun to overthink the whole thing again and need to be put back in my box with some sense.
Comments and advice or your experience very welcome...Thanks
One more question, could or rather would you mount something like a motor and mandrel and drive belt on a plywood base and then hang on the wall and use in the hanging position such that you face the buffing wheels at the level of a normal grinder? Would you cover the drive belt for safety? How far apart would you put motor and mandrel?
