That sounds amazing for the price. If it performs as good as it sounds it's a steal Dave. Should be perfect for LL.

If you have a small lathe, you can't go wrong with this one.   Anything up to 6" swing should be fine!

Hell an entry level VFD is $150....and you still need a motor!

OK    Some progress.   I pulled the brake and lever off, and dropped a button magnet on the screw that mounts the speed sensor and it works exactly as desired.   I'm reading up on a adjustment of soft start....Very pleased with this.

Are you going to out a stub into a t-nut in one of the t-slots to mount it?

I adapted a multi sheave cone pulley to the new motor.   That will work well.

Waiting on belt and tool post.
