For those interested in these devices, my micro motor-rubber band combo. Efficient and quiet alternative to mortal grinders.

There are many lurkers who appreciate your work I'm sure. I feel the need to be a vocal supporter because I think what you are doing - showing what can be done with limited resources and some ingenuity - is one of the core values of this forum and needs to be encouraged.

Yeah, it's compact and quiet, great for apartment use.
I may have to take down the vid, because of copyright issues if I monetarise my channel. If the link doesn't work, the vid will still be there at youtube/HomeMadeShow

Ahah I was going to throw away a couple motors but after this I'd use them to make one of these just for fun.
What are the polishing balls you used?

Throw away-you mean shoot them? Different balls can be used for different things. Ceramic, glass steel, lead.
