    I have a two wheel grinder (grinder with a wheel on either side of the motor) It is a 1/2 hp but I dont know the RPMs do you think this would work as either a table top kinda like a drill, or even as a tub plucker motor??? trying to do things on the cheap LOL.
    Thanks

    I think your grinder will be a 3400 rpm motor which is to fast-- unless you step it way down. Trying to do this will be more trouble then it is worth.

    I would stay on the look out for a 1700 or so rpm motor.
