I just got a quick question hopefully someone can answer for me. I am very new to knife making Ive completed two knives now on my 1x30 sander. I have a baldor 1.5 hp 1725 single phase motor and i am just wondering if that is a good motor to make this belt sander with. I also want to know if i can use variable speed or a VFC i believe is what it is called, or if i can only use a type pulley system which id rather NOT do. Ill attach the images of the motor here. Thanks in advance!
