Bruce, may be a great tip where to find a motor and controller cheap. Lots of treadmills out there where the only exercise they provide is moving it across the basement. A 1.75 HP DVR with controller runs about $650

Got my Delta set up. Somehow I have more space now.

Captain, No “standard” chip clearance depth. Jobber length depend on diameter. Stub bits only about 1/2 inch. Forstner, Spur, spade, and any length you want. Sure, once about three inches one has to do extra effort to clear the chips, Wood or metal. I decided I woudl continue to finish deep holes by hand and save me a grand. At least for now.

Andre, won’t touch that!

I suspect within a few years DVR motors will be far more common.
