Thanks Doug, If you noticed the 2.5" diameter stock in the lathe in two of the pictures you will see some
of the stock I was turning when the original motor gave it up. It cut like butter after I put the new motor/vfd
on the lathe. Very happy with the huge increase in torque.
That 2.5" diameter chunk in the lathe is in the process of being turned into your Universal Grinding Fixture.
