tvrgeek was talking about spindle speeds. What I am giving some real serious thought to was changing out the motor. I have a 2hp DC motor from a tread mill that I am thinking about using. It is controlled by a rheostat that came with it. I slowed it down pretty slow, put some gloves on and tried to stop it. That was not going to happen, that little motor just put more juice to it and I don’t think I slowed it down at all. Something to think about for slow speeds or fast speeds.
