Default Motorized Monster Mill on SS table

Been wanting to upgrade my P.O.S. thrown together scrap wood mill station. I love stainless steel. Its shinny, easy to clean, looks professional and it's shinny. So, needless to say i've been looking for small (24"x24") SS tables on ebay. found one pretty cheap for 50.00 brand new and shippend for 25.00.
16 gauge SS top, galvanized legs and adjustable shelf. I had already purchased a 3 roller Monster Mill and a Delta motor. Bought belt and pulleys from mcmastercarr. (love that place) The rest is self explainitory.

That's nice! Is the motor mounted on top of the table or just sitting there until you mount it below?

EDIT: nm, I see there are no bolts holding it down. Plus, there is no room for the belt where it sits currently. I should have looked closer before asking.

It'll stay on top so the grain dust doesn't get in the motor. I still need to cut the piece out near the motor to fit the belt. I'm trying to cut the least amount out of the table that I can.
I've been looking for SS sheets to bend and use as guards for the belt and pulley. Mcmaster has what I need. I don't want to cut/mangle my finger after a few beers when i'm milling grain.

Umm, clearly you need to get some stainless paint for the motor

Good luck with the table. It looks like by the time you remove enough of the table top to get your belt on, you may have a very flimsy top. Vibration is going to be a problem.

Great job so far, my only concern would be that the table top would amplify the noise of the motor and mill. Maybe gluing a piece of plywood underneath would work to reduce the noise and keep the top from flexing a lot.

Stainless table + Delta motor + 3-roller Monster Mill = Best Milling Station Ever. Seriously, that thing looks all business. I just have a 2-roller Monster Mill, but motorizing it is one of the best things I have ever done.
