looking for brushless DC motor for lathe

Recommended Posts

I need a new motor for my Boley Leinen 8mm lathe and my web searches have led me to thinking brushless DC motors have very good characteristics for mini lathes. Is anyone here using one on their lathes and if so, what brand?

That's probably larger than anything I have in my stash, but I'll see if I can dig something up.

Yes, I guess it's a bit of an overkill. ?

But it is used in sweat shops all over the world. It probably runs non stop 24/7.

Even after 1 hour of use, the lathe bushings are probably hotter than the motor itself.
