Not enough oooomph.

I looked at this when I was building my system, I asked John at red ink for his thoughts and he said he had one but sent it back as it was useless.

As well as the motor not really being powerful enough, this picture gives you an idea of how tiny the drums are.

For the same money you could find a cushioned linisher or drum sander, Potzy. Are you in NZ?

This it a good place to get an old motor

Haha. Yeah I'm getting onto it as we speak, using a couple of sheep on a treadmill to run my sander ;).
 Just wanted an idea about the motor size needed.
