Motor Acquisition....

I have recently come into possession of a working vacuum cleaner motor (generic: only says 60 hz, 120 V on the side) with cord and switch still attached (also the fins on the motor that created the suction). I can't even find a manufacturer logo on it. Anyways...I am looking forward to using this in a future project.

Just as an exercise, in case I am "thinking too small" what would you do with such a motor?

It looks a LOT like this one:

Goodhart, you suck! I don't know maybe some type of a vacuum pump?

Not me, only my motor LOL I was thinking along the lines of a resealable back evaluator, but then that may just suck bags inside out LOL

Like it was before? Well, I was thinking of trying to make a super good "dirt devil" style hand vac, but it would be a wee bit on the heavy side. :-)
vacuum former, it'd be compact.

Yep, that is what the Dirt Devil was......Dirt Devil Ultra

. It should blow just about as well as it sucks (that sounds bad). Use it for a mini-hovercraft.
