Looks like he still has 3 available.
You got a nice deal there. Congrats!

Yeah Dgonza9, I have ordered the coupler and capacitor. I'll order a switch tomorrow and hopefully ready to test it out this week. This motor is a beast of a thing. I'm sure it will do all I ask of it. Last I looked there were 2 left.

I have been looking for a deal on a motor for some time. I almost went with the Surplus Center 177 rpm motor. But knew that it would be marginal with my 3 roller. So far I'm glad I waited. We'll know soon.

Thanks,
Ron

I'm sorry to say not yet. I do have all of the hardware rounded up. I hope to get some work done this week.

How much torque does your motor have? I ran mine at 40 in/lbs and it jammed constantly. I wound up getting a much larger motor, 120 in/lbs. Now it runs very smoothly.

Could be your motor. How many rpms are you running at? How much torque?

Here's mine. The box was just made out of material I salvaged from an old entertainment center. The motor turns at about 107 rpm. I wish it was just a bit faster. I need to redo the hopper. I had cut a door for it, but I decided it wasn't really necessary.
