The motor is 1/4 hp and 1725 rpm, this is 120v and 6A. Pulley is 1 3/4"
I got this motor for 3$ (canadian) at a garage sale. Ya know, the kind
of deal you can't resist.
Counter shaft assembly parts and the 1/4 inch all thread for small feed
A reciprocating saw is a wonderfull tool (saw-z-all). I cut everything
with this now.
After some grinding and wire wheel brush, they are ready to be drilled
And here is the finally assembled counter shaft assembly. There are 30
bolts of 1/4" x 3/4" in there.
The nuts that pivot are lock-nuts with the nylon strip inside to ensure
they don't work themself loose.
The handle is a piece of 1 1/4" dowell from the piece needed for the
tail stock which I taped 1/4-20.
The shaft is a piece of 5/8" cold rolled steel cleaned up on the wire
brush. I will use a longer piece.
Here is the lever in the "use" position. Initially my small 1/2 inch
pieces were too long.
It would'nt close right. In a matter of minutes, I made new brackets
Here is the lever in the "change gear" position. It works beautifully
and the handle is just the right size.
Now here is the motor mounted on the counter shaft assembly.
There is a new shaft as the other was too short. This seems to fit much
I have made slots in the motor base since it was'nt a standard mounting
And here is how I attached the power cord using tie-wraps. I love
This will make sure the wire stay out of the way. I will install a
switch box near by to plug it in.
