A treadmill I recently dismantled that I got for free from KSL.com Utah/Idaho's version of Craigslist that is actually better than Craigslist.
I'm mostly interested in the treadmill's 17.2 amp DC motor with adjustable speed control. This particular one had a very large linear pot to adjust speed, which I think is pretty cool. It also has a pulse meter which may be used for something, and of course a magnet with a sensor on the flywheel used to calculate speed and distance. Oh and it has a bidirectional AC motor with a huge gear reduction used to adjust incline.
