    Hello friends. Today i will show you Amazing Tool For Workshop Using Wheel Hub And Washing Machine Motor. In this project I will use an old electric motor from a washing machine, a brake disc from a car and a hub. I made a great sander that is very powerful and pretty good at it's job.

    Could you provide a link for the speed controller you used with that washing machine motor?

    Mine is a 2 hp high torque motor with a heavy steel disc right on the shaft with a solid steel, adjustable work table. It weighs about 45 lbs. Found it at a flea market for $10.

    Nice the brake rotor adds enough spinning force to keep it from bogging down. Works good considering these cost well over 200 bucks for a 12" version.
    But one flaw I've got to point out, think about this, dont grind on metal and send Sparks into your vacume or dust collector as the sparks will set wood dust and fibers on fire, in fact dont use it for metal working at all the box could have sawdust in it and you would not know it was smoking untill it was too late.
    Its great for woodworking but the motor needs a separate chamber that can vent into the collection box might be better off with an open bottom and draw dust from below. You need to keep dust out of the motor too, if you look at comercial units they are made of metal, and the motors brushes cant get dusty. It works but id add a plastic window on at least one side. An upgrade might be a miter slot and tilting table. Maybe a jig for doing round parts.
    I think I spent 112 bucks on my 3/4 hp unit 17 years ago made by grizzly it dosnt have a speed control, these are usless on ac current unless its just a fan.
    To get speed control off a motor you need a dc motor treadmills use s dc motor from 1.3 to 3hp and can run off 120 volts ac using a rectifying diode and restate. Youll get the same power at low speed as top speed you wont get that with an ac motor. As the voltage drops the motor looses its power. Not the same with a dc motor.
    Look on youtube at 1" and 2" belt sanders built with dc motors or drill presses upgraded with dc motors.
    Id like to put one on my 14" band saw so I can cut metal or wood on it, one on my drill press so I dont need to mess with belt speed changes and one on my wood lathe for power and speed control as well as running backwards.
    Yes ive got an old dryer motor as well as good 3/4 hp motor ready to be used for somthing, but I'm thinking of a buffing station. With 2 buffing wheels. A rough in disk and fine work disk. Both sides can run off one motor.

      Your point about the sparks catching the saw dust on fire was the first thing I noticed and why I came to the comments to say it until I saw you already did :)

    Nice homemade device. Dryer motor of course would work to.
    I've considered using a dryer motor with blower assembly still attached and run some duct to it and a vent on the end that flow can be adjusted for shop. Perhaps even rig up the heating element on it as well. With the ability to switch the element on or off for winter use.

    Lots of comments saying a disc sander can be bought for not much money.
    Saw your reply saying a powerful one is expensive.
    Serious question - a $100 Grizzly G0787 sander has a 1/2 HP motor. Does this have more power than that model?

      Shorthand is so much faster and practical and it fliws along with train of thought because you eliminate ridiculous things like the o and the gh in the word "through", letters that are completely uneccesary in that word.

    Hi, just watched your video very nicely put together. I must add that the hub you have used which usually is held together by the cars driveshaft the way that you have mounted the hub. It can come detached from the bearing as there is no centre bolt securing the hob to the bearing, and as I say, there is usually a driveshaft holding it together using it the way you have built it. The hub can come detached from the bearing please install a bolt to secure two parts for your safety. Regards, Eddy

    • David Elliott
      David Elliott 5 months ago

      The rear hub and wheel bearing used on many Fiat cars can carry a brake disc or a brake drum. It is cheap (£25 new) and can be retained by a large bolt through the centre. It’s ideal for this job because there is no metal cutting needed.

    • stickyfox
      stickyfox 5 months ago

      What's currently holding it in? Just the bearing race friction/compression? Thanks, never took one of these apart.

    • John Bower
      John Bower 5 months ago +1

      The centre bolt that screws into the driveshaft has nothing to do with holding the bearing in place, this bolt is to hold the driveshaft into place, the bearing is held in place by press fitting friction or a cir clip depending on car make.

    • Ettore Frisenda
      Ettore Frisenda 4 months ago +1

      @John Bower Hi Jon, I without the driveshaft in place, the bearings can be easily knocked out from the centre. The part that is pressed in is the outer part of the bearing Which is retained by Sir clip without the shaft. It has no integrity. You will find this to be true if you were towing a car without driveshafts, the hubs soon become loose, and the only thing holding them, would be the brake calipers

    • Ray Markham
      Ray Markham 4 months ago +1

      @John Bower you are mistaken some bearings are made that way but front wheel drive bearings use the axle to hold the bearings together and to set proper preload this is why axle nut torque is so important to much or not enough will cause the bearing to fail.

    I have learned that it’s not a good idea to hold an object that you are grinding / cutting/sanding with one hand while holding the grinder with the other hand.
    I have been bit more than once.
    The second time made me realize I should have learned after the first.

    • The Pew Place
      The Pew Place 6 months ago +1

      He appears to be running it along the hub cover's outer wall, which is smooth metal perpendicular to the rotor contact face. It seems likely to slip under load given the thin belt and minimal friction area, but the weight of the rotor at speed will give it a lot of inertia which will help.
