Open coil motors always worry me for mills. They'll work though. TEFC is always my preference, though still not totally explosion proof.
Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.

I’m with Mumbles on this one, Mike. They’re great, continuous use motors, but being open coil should ask for some concern on your part. Now.....there are ways to protect it. Ie. mount in its own box, couple PC fans pulling filtered (fish tank water filter in a DIY housing) air, locate a far distance from rollers, run v-belt ALwAYS. Bobs your uncle.
