    Buffing machine is my next upgrade. I've looked at the Stewmac unit & just can't throw down that kinda money on what's there. I have an old 1 phase motor that I can rig up & have figured out my pulley diameters. I thought I'd leave it to our Ingenius bunch to throw out some ideas. I have a lot of them floating around but maybe you've built something better? I'd like to see what you've come up with. ?

    DIY: buffing machine

    Here's a pretty good setup for not much scratch. I'd personally go with a more powerful motor but that's my only gripe with his setup. I'm going to build one when I move into a house.

    Check that guy's other threads if you get a chance too, he's done a lot of awesome DIY threads. Maybe I'll shoot him a PM and let him know about this place.

    THat's pretty close to what I had in mind. Not sure I'd want to use one of those Delta motors, I have a few... I also want something a little more permanent but, good to see it all works & the basic idea is there.
