I went to the habitat store looking for bigger motor and they had several 1/6 - 3/4 HP motors, machine shop style for cheap. This would look really cool but I would have to find a couple of pulleys to drop the speed down 1:10, pulleys seem kind of expensive.
But I also found a rad little hand drill with a speed control dial and trigger lock. I’ll be able to set the speed nice and low, flip it on and let it do the work hand free. I just need a few straps and lock it down to the base.
So just as suggested by @bracconiere above this is a great cheap solution for a dedicated, hand free mill cabinet.
thanks for everyone’s help.

have you tried it with grain in the hopper? i'm not sure if that's going to have the torque at low speed?
