What to do with blender motor? Answered

Hello all. I have a relatively new blender but the carafe is broken. I hate to throw a perfectly good base in the landfill. So Im wondering if anyone has interesting ideas of something I can do with the motor. Thanks


if you still have the blade and the plastic ring and all that (i.e. if the only thing that broke was the glass of the carafe) you can just use a big mason jar and continue using your blender. The circumference of the jar should screw onto the plastic ring. Only thing you need to do is tip the whole thing over after you're finished blending.

You could make a dremel type tool. (depends on how big motor is)

It's a big, powerful motor.  It'll be great for CNC type stuff, as long as you can figure out how to attach a bit to the shaft!
