    It's a fine build and the sign is a nice add. It could've been even better, IMO, with a built-in mp3 player and a single Righteous Brothers track.

    I may just be showing my age.

    I made a wheel for someone using one of the CONSEW commercial sewing machine motors. Belt drive to a LARGE pulley under the wheel and the customer is happy. Strong enough to turn an elephant.

    Beefy build!
    Sink some NIB magnets in the faceplate and you could throw some of those cheap diamond plated lapping disks on it for sharpening tools, cutting rocks or flattening the excess glaze on the bottoms of pottery.

    Multipurpose that baby!
