    1/3 HP 1075 RPM Motor for Spindle Sander?

    What say you? I have a condenser fan motor and needed a spindle sander this weekend. Was thinking about a shop-made one. Looks like most of the ones on the market are powered by 1/4 1750 RPM or so motors. Would I miss the 700 RPMs if I made it a 1:1 gear ratio?
