So this morning I went hunting around for my variable speed control. Which I had previously used for my blower fan that connected to my twier and into my coal fire forge. Worked quite nicely for that and moved a ton of air. Either way I had repurposed it. I wanted to test something out to see if I could get a slower speed than 600 RPM on the Harbor Freight wood lathe. So I hooked the variable speed into the lathe this morning to test that theory. I don't have a tacometer to verify it. How ever it seems to have worked. It does make a couple of clicks but I can only assume that the clicking noise is the variable speed control talking to the motor telling it to spin at a certain speed. Here is the video result of the hole thing. No music just lathe sounds. Almost 2 minutes. So score 1 for me.
