I found a couple motors at a local yard sale and cleaned them up and got them running. The big one is 3/4 hp with 3450 rpm. I was originally going to use it for a disc sander, but got lucky this morning and found a 3/4 hp x 1725rpm motor which is more suitable. Check out the video and subscribe.

The red/black color combo works for me. I like it. Those ball bearing motors do run smooth, don’t they?

I have the same 3/4 HP Craftsman motor. Mine has a large dent in the center. I was wondering what it was like to remove it so I could try pounding out the dent. You made that part look easy. It looks great.
Thanks for the video.
