    Exclamation Washing Machine Motor Powerful Router

    Hello friends, in today's video I will show you how to reuse a old electric motor from a washing machine. DO NOT THROW THE OLD WASHING MACHINE MOTOR IN THE TRASH / DIY Powerful Router. I will show you How to make a router from an old brush universal electric motor from a washing machine. For this purpose I use old wooden countertops of good quality, screws and a drill chuck. In the video you will learn how to connect the chuck to the electric motor and how to achieve a perfect balance. I will make a wooden handle with which you can easily lift the mechanism and I will put 2 two-way screws with a tightening handle. The mechanism is uniquely easy and I hope you like the video.

    European washing machines are weird. I think the only things I own with universal motors are a vacuum cleaner, a blender and some hand tools.

    Happy that it works, but surprised a washer motor has sufficient RPM to spin router bit, normally in excess of 18,000. This including certainty of runout from spindle-chuck-bit combination, proportionally a long way from the motor bearing.
    ...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...

    При всём уважении к твоему творческому подходу, делать ручной фрезер из дерева и стиральной машинки крайне не эффективно. Тем более точить конус Морзе шлифовальной машинкой. Крайне разочарован.

    my brother was a sears repair tech for 19 years. started with washing machines ,finished as the #1 AC refridration tech in the south east usa. about 35 years ago he built many tools from washer machines parts . the most used was the bead roller witch did many racecars& street cars "tinwork" my old street/drag car's interior was aluminum beed rolled from the dash to the rear bumper.I got pretty good at it. that dash was aswsome, not just a incert as most were doing but the entire dash made from 1 sheet, beaded and bent not a single rivet or seam, it was a work of art....and after a few races.and lots of can you make me one comments. a race car chassie company came out with a dam near exzact coppy of my dash...- some of the fancy handy work logo I had bead rolled into it also. I miss that car, wish I never had sold it for next to nothing.last I heard it sold for around $36000.00 and was still on the streets. thats possiably the highest ever paid for a plymouth 340 duster that was no where neer "OE". I made lots of money with that car, but the memories are priceless.Washing Machine Motor Powerful Router-20180929_114831.jpg
