Gear motor for rotory table for milling

Hello,
I am getting my feet wet this summer with milling when I can finally hook up my j head bridgeport. I have a few projects that a rotory table will be useful. i think it would be nice to have a power setup for one to get a nice and even final cut. At the local surplus store there are two gear reduced variable drive 0-400 lab stir motors. I was thinking one of these might work well.
According to the manufacturers website it has a 1/9 hp motor, gear drive and produces 196 oz-in of torque.

Will this motor work for a rotory table in the 12 - 16 inch size? Second is it not even nessassary to have a setup like that?

Milling Leather

So, has anyone here ever milled leather?

I would like to mill a fairly shallow closed pocket in a 2.5mm thick piece of relatively dense leather. I have a fixture designed (including a vacuum apparatus to suck up the cuttings), but I have no idea what kind of tool one should use for this, or even if it's been done before. I'm thinking a 2mm, 2 flute, low helix mill for aluminum, run at a high speed and low feed should give us a clean edge, but I suspect experimentation will be the order of the day on this deal.

Hot product: Solar panels weather challenges

olar panels have barely budged from their place within the upper ranks of the top 10 products on the Global Sources website in the past 12 months despite "dark" times.

Month-on-month buyer inquiries dipped in July 2012, although aggregate searches in the first six months of 2012 are 42 percent higher YoY.

In recent months, solar panel business in the EU has narrowed after some member countries reduced feed-in tariffs for large PV installations. The EU is the line’s largest market, accounting for about 75 percent of the world’s total installed capacity.
