Treadmill motor used to power a belt sander. I initially controlled the speed using the original "large" treadmill user control panel. Wanted smaller so was looking to use an MC-60($50-100) board and pot but saw an 10000w SCR($20 give or take) and bridge rectifier used to do it in a YouTube video. I don't recall the link posting rules on this forum so I will post it this way. https : //www . youtube . com/watch?v=_NmAFZMAfH8 (take out the spaces around the colon and periods if you want to see it). I bought the components and bench tested it, was afraid it would be noisy but it was amazingly quit and seemed to work like a charm. Does anyone know if there may be some "cons" to doing this. The "pros" are pretty much self evident.
