    std 1/4 hp washing machine motor used to be 1425rpm IIRC. I remember having a 1/2hp sitting under my workbench rated at 2850 but son tells me he biffed it cause it was seized up;. my std ratio for sawbench was approx 3;1 which coped well with what was fed in as long as you didnt rush it.

    A sawbench for what? If it's basic dressed timber cutting no more than 50mm thick, you -might- get away with a 1/4hp at a slow feed rate. If it's 75mm thick firewood that isn't fully dry, you could well need a full horsepower with a 250mm blade.

    A bit like rifles, some spare horsepower is always good

    I may be able to help you with these items. I have a 1/3 HP 1425 RPM single phase motor which I was just about to put on Trademe with a modest reserve. Freight could be a problem though, unless you know somebody who will be travelling from the Wellington region to Chch. Courier cost could be more than the motor is worth. I also have two 3 phase motors, 1/2 HP and 1 HP, but they will only be of use if you have 3 phase power supply.Name:  DSC_0438.JPG

    I also have two saw spindles. One made by Trojan, shown in the attached photo, and another consisting of two pillow blocks with plain bronze bearings, mounted on a steel plate. The shaft has saw collars at one end and a chuck (somewhat rusty) at the other end. I will photograph it tomorrow if you are interested.

    There is a minor problem with the Trojan spindle. I put it on Trademe months ago, and the auction winner paid me $27, the amount of his bid but no freight cost, then vanished without trace! Several emails, the last one tonight, have gone unanswered. I have pointed out that I cannot hold it forever. If re-selling it, I would expect $27, in case that bidder does suddenly re-appear and want his money back.

    Hmm - that photo didn't come out too well so I'll try another.
