Re: [taigtools] Taig lathe motor
- Yes, I use them on a lot of the Basic set-ups that I sell. ( http://midamericapool.com/index_files/Page324.htm ) The motors that I use are not the normal ones that you generally run into. Most that you will find are rated at .7 amp. or some may be.9 amp. The ones that I use are 1.20 amp. So they are a little stronger. The foot controls are a variable resistance speed control so they lose torque at slower speeds. But for the purpose that I intend them to be used for (mostly cutting wood, plastics & leather) they are very adequate.

Has anyony used a sewing machine motor to power a taig lathe ?
How was it arranged and was there enough torque?
