    Aside from any strength concerns, it comes down to proportion and consistency with existing if new work will be displayed with old work. IMHO. I tend to make simple frames when I do make them, but...

    Roger, you live in the "plaster geography" for sure. Not so, here...other than in historical buildings, etc., it's rock on the walls. Even a skim coat of compound over that is a rarity!

    It's an induction motor, so honestly...the easiest way to solve this is to buy a 1750 rpm grinder to use with those wheels. You cannot use any kind of common "speed control" on an induction motor....

    Unless there's something unique about an old blade that might provide some advantage/benefit, such as an unusual kerf width, etc., I personally wouldn't keep them around. Recycle them.

    PC 7518. If it ever dies, I'll probably go with the Milwaukee or maybe one of the no-names. I prefer a big, heavy 15 amp router motor in the table.
