    Ideas for a motor?

    I have access to at least one working sump pump motor (probably 1/3 to 1/2 hp). I'd like to make use of it in the shop..... But I'm not sure for what.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what I could use this motor for?

    Handiest thing I have done with one was add spindle adapters, a wire brush on one end and scotch brite pads. Clamp it to the bench and then store it when not needed.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
