At the slow speed the motor runs at, it might make a good power
center for a buffing/grinding mandrel. Before affordable home shop
grinders came out, guys used to hook up a washing machine motor
under or behind a buffing mandrel. Mount a friable (white) wheel
on one side and a linen buff on the other and you have a slow-speed
grinder for your edge tools and you can put a razor polish on your
chisels and plane irons with the buff charged with jeweler’s rouge.
