    They sell the motor I installed.
    It's a no brainer as it uses the exact same mount as any clutch motor.
    The new motor is completely programmable from 200 to 1800(I think) rpm.
    Far far better for any intricate work and still plenty of torque.
    Whole upgrade cost me $200 Cnd.
    I think they sell the motors for about $150 USD????

      I second this thought.

        Funny...I have an old shop apron I made 25 or 30 years ago...has a dang handy metal strap on it for clipping a tape measure to.
        Never thought of selling them....hmmmm

          I third this thought, though I'm an ocean away. But since I aim to cast iron eventually, and the person on the other end of the pouring bucket will be a daughter, I'll want a second apron to suit one of the fairer gender, too.

          Nice to see you back.

              That's very impressive Torker. Almost wish I owned a horse.


              I can see blacksmiths and welders needing quality leather protection.

                very nice work, big changes for the welder dude i used to know, sometimes change is good. (but sometimes it isn't - but still - sometimes it is)

                      Thanks Torker,

                      I think that will tame my machine. Thanks for the tip.

                        Toker, I mean Torker, it is nice to see you have landed on your feet after your Divorce. I am currently just starting the process.

                        Around here, welding leathers in large sizes, (3xlt and up) are very hard to find. It might be something to think about.

                          Okay shop aprons,

                          I'll take two in Angus and one in Holstein

                          Seriously a good shop apron is hard to find.And we just happen to know of a publication that sells advertising to folks selling things to machinists and blacksmiths

                          Too bad you weren't here a couple weeks ago.I saw a nice old Clicker press heading down the road towards the scrapyard
                          I just need one more tool,just one!

                            It's good to see you back.

                            I think they are on to something, put an add in HSM, sell a bunch, buy more tools.
