I don't have them at hand, but I will check them closer later in the week, they are at my farmhouse. 2 of the 1/4 hp motors came from old sump-pumps. The other 3 motors came from washers and dryers. We also looked pretty hard for some discarded 1" steel for spindles, but we decided that we should purchase these new..along with new berrings and belts. This will be a very slow project. I have a garage sized building to house it, so table size is not an issue. All options are open..and I rather like the full length driven-arm idea.
