    Your build inspired me which inspired many others so you are allowed to bag it up for a bit ;)

    Would of loved for you to finish it off though as you were pretty close

    Noise was one of the reasons that I dropped the project (at least for now). But that would have been overcome with an insulated enclosure.

    I still have everything out in an enclosed trailer, I might get around to it again if I can source some inexpensive AC motors/gearboxes. It could happen. :)
