Question Wife's old tools (does NOT include me!)

Hey guys and gals, this may seem a little weird but, the LOML is discarding two items that have good,working motors. 1. a garbage disposal and, 2. a 14 amp. upright vacuum.

I'm a bit frugal and cannot bring myself to toss these items or simply give them away. Does anyone have any ideas for their use or, use for the motor(s) in the shop.

I will be eternally grateful for your input.

Hi Gene

You can use them to make a drum sander,,,the vac.motor is a little low on power but the garbage disposal has the power..

You can use the ring on the GD to mount it or put on a pulley ....the pulley way works just a little bit better...with a pillow block way..and a old drill chuck to hold the drum sander part.

Thanks Bob. I have an oscillating DS but, another DS would be handy. That GD seems to have some pretty high revs, though.

HI Gene

You're Welcome

MOst are 3450 rpm's but with the pulley you can slow it down to 1750 rpm's or less... it's nice to have two of them, one for the big jobs and one for the small jobs ( curves) by the way with a quick made jig it can be used for a planer sander

How about adapting that upright vacuum as a shavings collection system for your block plane?

Gee, thanks Ralph. Probably be able to adapt the block plane vacuum to the scraper too, huh?

Yes, that's an optional (extra cost) accessory.

Darn! Why can't everything be included. The plane adapter, one for the scraper and one for my chisels. Probably have to get one for each size and then a whole 'nuther set for the motise chisels. Gee, it never ends.

Got an idea for the disposal.
Use it to chop up your scrap wood and make pellets out of it for a pellet heater.

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
