The setup looks great; nice job on the plate. The mill gives you the capacity to turn an idea into a working product.
I bought my motor from Sincere off of Ebay. They are extremely quiet and I like them much better than any other lathe motor I have tried so far. It is an AC induction motor so the speed must be regulated with a frequency or duty cycle type of speed controller. A standard watch motor pedel will not work with this type of motor. I regulate mine with belts and pulleys but that is a personal preference. The motors cost about $200.00 each and the price includes the pulley.
