Well, the kitchen disposal started squirting water all over the inside of the cabinets last night, so I'm home replacing it. The motor's still good, and runs off AC household current, so I'm thinking of salvaging it and using it in a prop this year.

Has anyone used a disposal motor before? This one is 1/3 horsepower, an In-Sink_erator Badger 1. Any ideas what it would be best suited for?

That would be good for a big shacking bucky cage. Need alot of gear down for anything else unless it will work with a dimmer switch

I agree with slightlymad that a shaking skully cage would be a good idea.
