Odd topic of the day maybe. I've been pondering this for a while and it occurred to me today that there are probably people on TDPRI that would know about these things. Backstory: had a treadmill give up the ghost. Disassembled it, took what I could to the salvage yard/recycler. All that's left is this 3hp electric motor that has been sitting here now for a year or so. Hate to just toss it out. I seem to recall someone telling me that there might be value in the copper windings. Really? I don't and will never have a use for it. Is this thing destined for the trash can, or is there someone out there who repurposes these things?
