Free washing machine motor
Use a motor from a defunct washing machine to drive your
engineering projects e.g. lathe, potters wheel, pillar drill, mixer etc.
My speed controller is now available as a kit with ready wired/tested PCB.
Prices are £40 without the mains filter, fitted and supplied by the
user from the donor washing machine (£10 separately) . This is still
not for the beginner, advanced mechanical and electrical skills are needed.
Buy with paypal (click on picture).
Both 250v and 115v versions available, please specify. Our controller now
has revised panel layout, to encourage worldwide
inovation prices remain the same. All controllers will be provided on the
front panel but without the box to save on postage. See appropriate extra
Please note these are not the same as the cheap open loop,
non constant speed controllers sold on E-bay and have superior speed/torque
characteristics to many variable frequency inverter induction motor drives
The CNC controller to be operated by PWM
is now available.
