General Homebrew Discussion / help motorizing grain mill
« on: February 16, 2013, 02:42:06 PM »
Want to motorize my grain mill.  Probably overthinking it at this point, but am trying to figure out the best way to do this.

Motor I have is Power Craft Pro cs-103A. It's a mini bench grinder I've had laying around forever and also sells under name TruPower PowerKraft, Neiko.  It's variable speed to 10,000 RPM 115v with 120w output. Want to run my mill at under 500 rpm.  Is there any easy way to determine the actual RPM it is putting out if I were to direct connect it to my mill so I know I am not running it too fast?  If I were to run it with pulley/sheaves I am racking my brain trying to figure out the right ratio.

I just want to keep it simple!
