Looks good.


If you covered the motor with a pair of nylons, you would not have to clean it out as often.

I've been using a washing machine motor for my diskgrinder for about two years now. Still going strong!!!!!!!!!!
I built a wood box around mine to keep the dust off the motor, works pretty good, just an occasional cleaning required.

Hello Allan, thanks for the post.

I have a motor, but haven't located a disk surface. Did you make it, or can you recommend a vendor?

Thanks for the post.

Jim
