Which electric motor for which project? Answered
OK, so I got two projects for this winter. One - building a lathe for woodturning. Not a mini-lathe, but a bit more serious piece of equipment that I could use for some furniture details. Two - apple mill for cider.
And I have two salvaged electric motors laying around. One is from an old Remington chainsaw, 1400 W and probably some quite serious speed. The other one is from a pump, actually water automate that sat on my 15-meter borewell. Do not have the data, but most probably slower (and it is way bigger).
Problem is, I have zero experience with such stuff. For setting up the electricity side I will probably call in the cavalry, but first i need to decide, which motor I will use for which purpose. So, any advice, gurus?
