Default blender stirplate

Has anyone out there made a stirplate out of a common blender?
I saw in the thread that someone proposed it, but any luck?
Lowest speed too fast?

thanks

I've never heard of anyone trying it. I would think that the motor would be way to powerful. I made my stirplate with a computer fan for a motor, with the power cut in half, 6 volts.

Haven't tried it, but the lowest speed on my blender is way too fast. I think it would be very difficult to slow it down enough to not froth the starter.
