Good job!  Mebbe we shout start a PMOP project thread... Last weekend I happened across the perfect free electric motor assembly (you wouldn't believe what it's from) to rebuild my late grandfather's antique wrought iron BBQ rotisserie with a 50:1 antique Boston Gear right angle gear reduction.

If you wanna guess, here's a pic of the motor assembly, minus the flat belt. The opposite wheel is the same as the one you can see, but the cams are 180 out of phase. The motor is on a hinged mount and gravity tensions the belt.

To me it looks like it might be from an old belt massager. :-)
