>... can possibly help me. Will the following motor work for a Variable Speed conversion on my lathe? (I know that a similar 1/2hp rated Leeson at CS-USA is nearly $500 w/controller.)
Specs as I know them:
Brand new DC permanent magnet motor.
Rated 1/2 HP,
Shaft is 5/8" diameter,
Motor frame size is 56C, which allows base or face mount.
If so, what type of controller etc. do I need to look for?
If not, why? (so I can learn a thing or three...)
... with too much time on his hands... and no tools in them...
