After mounting the motor and installing a temporary belt, I plugged in the controls and tested the lathe. It runs very well and smooth. I think it will run even smoother with a segmented v-belt. I’ll run to the auto part store tomorrow afternoon and pick one up. I hope they have one to fit.
Here is a video of the lathe running. The maximum speed of the lathe is going to be 2865 RPMs. Not quite fast enough for turning pens, in my opinion, but fast enough for table legs and spindles. I hope it will have enough power to do some bowl turning. Time will tell.
