OK, so I have seen many posts in the net regarding the bodine motor directly driving a grain mill. Not being able to find a motor at a reasonable price (to me anyway) I did find this:

IT IS MADE BY RELIANCE ELECTRIC. IT IS A 1/3 HP, 1725 RPM,115/230 VOLT,6.4/3.2 AMPS, 60Hz. IT IS A USED MOTOR BUT RUNS REALLY SMOOTH AND QUIET



Based upon the RPM, I assume I will need a belt to reduce that a bit. Is there any reason this motor would NOT work? If anyone has used a similar motor and can point me in the direction of parts I'd appreciate it!

Looks like a fine motor to me. Let us know where you are at. I can point you where to look in Canada, but I'm assuming you are in the US.
