DC motor
« on: February 18, 2016, 06:08:11 PM »
I just removed the motor from a treadmill. It's a 2.25 hp 130v DC motor. Would a AC to DC converter cost too much? Should I just take the motor apart and rip out the magnates?

Hey! I could use the belt and the motor to make one HUGE flat lap.  thinking12  How much diamond dust would it take to cover a belt about 12 feet long and 3 feet wide?

Dave those motors are very desirable by people wanting to convert a drill press to variable speed but you must have the controller from the tread mill also.They can also be adapted to a mill or lathe for wood and/or metal. I would even be willing to buy it if all the parts are there and the controller still works. Pm me if interested
