Here's a wire wheel stand I built out of some scrap items.The red knob is the on-off,pull up for on,push-in for off.It controls a rocker switch on the motor that's out of a gas pump.

That'll take the dot off a Hindu...It's a "gitter-done" that's for sure. I like it. Wouldn't want to get my gold chain caught in it though. Any chance of putting a rheostat on it to slow it down a tad for a polishing bonnet?

Funny story about belt guards. I have a big old furnace blower that I use in the summer to circulate air in the shop. It would run for a while, then the motor would get hot and kick off. In 10 minutes or so, it would kick back on, until it got hot again, As usual for me, there was no belt guard.

When fatcat's children were little, the belt fascinated them, and was right at their eye level. So he made a guard for it to keep little fingers out. A byproduct, the motor no longer overheated, the guard would throw enough air to the motor to keep it cool.

Frank,I'll have to try that belt-guard idea.I've got the same problem with the old furnace motor squirrel cage in my shop.It does the same thing.Good idea.
