A psa disc based grinding/sharpening unit, that’s exactly what I’m holding out for a 1/3-1/2 HP motor for and yours sounds ideal as it is lower rpm and I assume the “3 speed” gives you two other speeds below 1050rpm? If you can get access to it there was a good shopnotes article on a unit that sat on a drill press table and used an axle from the chuck to spin the discs, but you can do a standalone unit with a motor, pulleys and v-belts.
Check out the lapsharp sharpener foir thge general idea.

Other than that, a benchtop disc sander for light duty sanding tasks, or a conveyer belt to serve up sushi to workshop visitors?
