As a kid it always amazed me how The A-Team could make an armoured car out of a toilet roll, a box of matches and a jar of stale olives or similar objects they managed to find in hedges but looking through the contents of my shed I've found a number of motors in full working order attached to 'budget' tools that have parted this life but left behind useable motors. There's a 90 watt, from a scrollsaw. A 350 watt from a bench drill, an 1100 watt from a mitre saw, a 125 watt from a bench sander and a 150 watt from a bench grinder....any ideas what I could use them for ? :)

With a couple of oil drums and a skate board you could make an amphibious car/submarine/helicopter just like the A Team !!!! :wink:

I used to have a bottle of Mr T car wax once (really). I wonder if it is still underneath the kitchen sink? I must go and have a look. :)

I've always fancied making a motorised Lazy Susan, big enough to sit in the front window and slowly rotate my latest Objet D'Art for the edification of the neighbourhood.

Cheers Steve

Dave - The 90 watt unit could make a good paint mixer (Weld or rivett a rod with a paddle on it) I did this some years back & found it quite useful. Can't think of anything else but do let us know what you come up with
