About that face plate on this little motor, it did take some finagling to get a piece of 1/4 inch steel to fit.

1 & 2. back to the drill press for the first set of holes.
By the way, that Wilton 6" drill press vise really is a fine thing to have for projects like this. I bitched about the factory gibs in the beginning but it really does save a lot of re-positioning and it does grip the workpiece.

3 & 4. I had hoped that a 1 1/2" holesaw would wobble out just enough to clear the bearing pocket, but it didn't quite over-cut it's size.

5. So back to Mildred and my other little Mark & Stacey Christmas gift from a couple of years back.
