TAIG lathe DC variable speed motor mod

  1. Make a motor mount for my setup (detailed in riser block project).
  2. Align the lathe and motor positions for proper pulley alignment(...)
  3. Modify Sherline motor pulley to use smaller TAIG V-Belts
  4. Make a custom toolbit, to cut the new groove
  5. Plan A- Use friend's lathe to make a new pulley.. that didn't work out.
  6. Plan B - bolt the compound slide to table near motor and use compound to precisely cut the new V groove.. which I consider a temporary setup because I want to make a new pulley with different size steps. It just seemed like a lof of work just to get the lathe up and running to make the new pulley.
  7. Plan C - What if I just hold the toolbit and try to work it like a woodworker would.. you know, slow RPMs, in my bare hands..
  8. I know what you're thinking.. that's a bad idea..
  9. well... stick around, I'm full of bad ideas.
