Yeah $155 shipped seemed pretty good for new commercial-grade DC motor drive box. Agreed, it is too bad that none of them come with the brake accessory, but I will keep an eye out for a deal on one....

You are correct that this is mostly a "cool factor" project, and I am 100% unconcerned about future resale value or recouping costs. I am already more than the original cost/value of this thing into...

You are correct that I could DIY part-out a treadmill. There is a reason why entire treadmills are so cheap. It would cost north of $200 to have junk haulers take it out of your house. I don't need a...

Most of the treadmill motors that I have seen are rated at somewhere between 1.5 & 4HP. "Rated" anyway. Even if they can only reliably deliver half of what is on the nameplate/sticker, it's probably...

Nice! Yeah the treadmill motors were one of my first considerations. I was sort of afraid that the brushed motors would be noisy, particularly with an SCR type speed control (which is what all of the...

Just for kicks, here's a brief summary of the drill press story.

It was living in a retired model maker's basement, in a coastal area with a lot of rain.

Converting Drill Press to Variable Speed

First, I am not trying to optimize for cost or whatever here, but just having some fun with one of my home workshop's tools which gets periodic use. If I was really concerned, I would just go buy a...

I would avoid RTV on the oil pan gaskets simply because it can make them nearly impossible to get off in the future. Are you certain that the upper pan gasket is what is leaking? Timing case cover &...

Solid! Looks like it is time to ditch the Xenon's!

I am looking for the most OEM-looking light setup. Am I correct to assume that I want the 4300K bulbs?

I 100% endorse swapping to the 1994-1995 M42 timing case. The deflector sprocket in the original E30 design is crap and a time bomb. It is what did in my original engine.

It is a direct swap using...

The sprockets look good.

For a part produced in early or mid 1990, the damper also looks OK, but it is hard to tell from the photos. With your hands, grip the outer metal toothed ring and use your...

Yeah, #8 just slides on/off. Part #9 indexes the angular position of both #8 & #6 (and crucially, #1). The immense clamping force from the crank bolt (#4) is what allows all of the torque to be...

The oil pump is integrated into the timing case, so if the shop wants the case removed, the oil pump is included there. It is a good idea to check the condition of the rotors anyway, and pack them...

Man, BP's site was THE go-to for me when I was in high school (circa 2000)! It was almost the only 318iS-related enthusiast site which had really good detail and information at the time.
