Another Ball Turner...With An Added Feature
« on: November 11, 2017, 09:19:21 PM »
I motorized it.

The height of the handle was causing pain in my old arm and shoulder, so I put a motor on it. It's a 15 RPM 12 Volt gear reduction motor hooked up to PWM so I can slow it right down and get some nice finishing passes on the workpeace.

Nice, but I would want something to protect the belt from swarf.
Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:
