Default Old treadmills: the buffalo of exercise equipment

There's not much on these things that can't be re-used or recycled. Nice steel frames, good hardware (usually grade 5)...and best of all, most have DC motors with PWM speed controllers that are great for converting tools with AC motors to much more useful devices with easy speed control. This week I've picked up two to use as parts donors to convert my bandsaw and drill press. When finished, both will be much more useful when it comes to cutting metal!

Good thinking........an old friend I not seen in a while, used to put his dawg on the treadmill to exercise him.....pretty good clip too, it was funny to watch, obviously some treats involved too.....
