mini lathe replacement motor

MINDLESS BORING: Idea for mini lathe replacement motor. In the past, sourcing a variable speed motor for the Asian mini lathes to replace or upgrade with, has been a favorite, or necessary modification the mini lathe. Most of these small bench top lathes come with a dc motor and an electronic variable speed control, to adjust the spindle rpm. Here is an idea source for your next mini lathe mod, or to upgrade and replace the motor on your lathe.
This project is for the serious do-it-yourself hobbyist, and while some will use treadmill motors and match up a variable speed dc motor control circuit, a potentiometer, and a heat sink, this comes complete, but you must watch the video to see how. enjoy = SHARE ROCKNTV1
