I have an old 4 frame hand crank extractor that I was thinking about converting to a cappings spinner, but need to add a motor with speed control to it. Is there someone that sells a conversion kit to do this?
any V-belt motor will work. get appropriate pulley and v-belt from local tractor supply company and you're good to go. Assuming you don't have a capacitor start motor, you can get a router speed controller from about $15 from Harbor freight and that can easily vary your motor speed.
