Default Guinevere Sanding motor

Does anyone know the speed of the Guinevere Sanding motor?


I have the inflatable drums from Guinevere and was hoping to use one of the excess motors I have around. One is 1725rpm and the other 5,000 rpm.

I am planning on using with a Wolfcraft flex shaft.

Thanks

Don

Isn't 3600 RPM a little fast for recommended flexible drum sanding?

I have the Guinevere system and it is, in my opinion, too fast for intarsia. I use it with a sanding star (little sanding mop) for rounding edges, and with the inflatable drum for shaping small pieces that are difficult with the larger drums. I have the flexshaft and have never used it. We shall not discuss using Dremel tools for shaping since I've never mastered that.

1725 is a good speed for the flex shaft. I also think the Guinevere is too fast. it would be a perfect system if it was variable speed.
I have my bigger drum speed cut down to about 1200 with pulleys.

Thanks everyone for your input.

I have ordered the flexshaft and now need to find the chuck to fit the shaft.

I am going to hook up to the 1725 rpm motor. The motor came from my Dad's table saw and so it must be 50 years old and still purrs along.

If that doesn't work out I'll buy another variable speed grinder at Lowes on my next trip to the USA.

Thanks again

Don
