Go to the local Vocational/trade school and check with the HVAC department. They probably have a ton of old donated furnaces. Get a blower motor- 1/3 or 1/4 HP. It will probably have a 5/8” shaft with either a key way or flat spot on the shaft. Next a motor shaft coupling to connect from the motor to a 5/8” buffing wheel mandrel. Or you could connect the motor, using the coupling to a shaft running on a couple of pillow block bearings. Mount several buffing wheels on the shaft between the bearings- instant buffing station.
