    Post Shop use for old blender?

    After the Christmas gifts were opened, I find that we now have a surplus old blender.

    Anybody have any ideas for a good use for this in the shop? I hate to throw away a good piece of "machinery" with a multi-speed motor.

    lime slices
    margarita salt
    Pour limeade concentrate, tequila, triple sec and soda into large plastic container, and stir to mix. Fill blender with 5 cups crushed ice. Add limeade mixture to ice in blender and blend until slushy. Pour into salt-rimmed Margarita glasses. Garnish with lime slices.

    Note: Squeeze half a lime into a small bowl with a flat bottom. Dip each glass into the lime juice and then into the margarita salt.

    Sorry, I still can't face a Marguerita after that one night in Juarez, Mexico in 1965. Felt like someone wire-brushed my teeth for 3 days after! I didn't feel anything that was good for the first two days....

    Actually I was thinking more in the line of a buffer, grinder, toolpost grinder, paint mixer...??? Anybody converted a blender at all?

    Did I mention that this one was really shiney?

    Does a blender motor go fast enough to build a tool post grinder out of?

    Sounds like you just need to make a gear box and valhalla, you have a Power X, or Y, or Z feed for your mill.

    I like the feed idea. You could have different speeds like CHOP, WHIP and PUREE...

    Well not exactly shop related, but you could take apart the motor, use the rotor and rewind it into a 1.5KW brushless electric motor for model airplane use. I have a friend out in Norway who is doing it.
