 I'll be cutting some projects soon.

Waiting for winter to get here. The weather has warmed back up so I have to finish up projects around the house while I still can before it gets cold.

I've never seen a single-phase motor at 900 rpm (8-pole).  1200 rpm (6-pole) is a little uncommon, but they're out there.  

I had one, 1/2 hp 1200 rpm, on my Delta 1460, but switched to a 1 hp three-phase 1800 rpm with inverter drive.  Now I can get it down to a crawl, and being three-phase, I can overspeed it a bit without worry.  Soft-start is nice, too. 

I set the belt ratio for the type of work, like high speed for small spindle work, and low for bowl or other large diameter, and just use the speed control for the whole project.  Very convenient.

Looks fantastic. Very nice work.
