Hello gentlemen,

I just acquired a 3/4 HP 3450 RPM motor. Just wondering, would work for a lathe or disk sander? Input would be appreciated.

Thanks Mark.

Yep, should work fine as long as you can mount it where needed. Do you have a lathe or plan to make one? If replacing a motor, physical mounting will be the major consideration. Pully ratios will need to be determined for the turning speed desired.

I want to build a lathe / disk sander combo someday. I had a craftsman lathe but sold it a while back. Thanks for the input!

Might be a little fast for a lathe.

Oh, c’mon! That’s only a matter of pulley size!

Fast for a disk sander, too, if direct drive. Okay if using pulleys.
