I have a "new" garbage disposal (a cheapo Insinkerator Badger1 that I
got during a white goods pickup recently) that I don't want to install
in my home (we're on a septic, and we've been fine without one since
we moved in), and it really isn't worth the effort in trying to sell.
I've done a search on the rec for some ideas, but I was wondering if
anyone had any others. I'd especially be interested in opinions on if
it can effectively be turned into a mini lathe. I assume the motor is
a TEFC induction motor, (advertised 1/2HP), so I don't think I could
just install a "dimmer" type switch to regulate the speed.
The other ideas I saw mentioned here were:
1 - Stone/glass grinder
2 - Sharpening system base
So to what useful purpose can I put this thing other than weighing
down my garbage can?
