I salvaged an AC motor from an old water pump I found on the side of the road and want to use it to make a simple lathe for turning green wood bowls and cups. I was thinking about using a floor flange as the face plate, a nipple for the shaft and pillow bearing blocks to support it. This assembly would be driven by a v belt and controlled by the speed controller from a jig saw. I attached pictures of the components and a simple cad drawing of the assembly. Do you think this would be functional? Any recommendations?
