So I have a motor I am looking for a use for and have some questions.
- Baldor - 2 HP
- 115/220 VAC
- 1725 RPM
- 1.125" diameter shaft
I was thinking of maybe building a belt-driven bench grinder (my factory-built one is just about dead). Is ths a good idea, or does something like this not work as well as a factory-built unit? I know I would need to offset the pulley sizes to achieve a faster RPM on the grinder, but that should be easy enough to do.
So, has anyone done this before? Are there pictures / specs you could share? Or any other suggestions for the motor?
