    Thanks captainleeward for a simple fix that will get my walker turner turning again. I picked up two DC motors from a mobility scooter a few days ago. I can compair their output to a treadmill motor to see if I can use one on the lathe. if there not simular enough I will know what Im looking for. Cheers, Clarion Peals
