Default Maytag 92, Practical contemporary applications?

Hi folks. i'm new to the fold. Just picked up a 92 and have ordered a few parts to get it started. It needs a plug and plug wire, minimum. After that, who knows? I'm focused on getting it running first, then overhauling followed by complete restoration.

SN #320843. Curious if anyone can identify the year for me and any other info the SN might reveal.

My big question is what practical contemporary applications have you seen for the engine?

On Youtube, I have seen one power an ice cream maker and a grinding wheel.Haven't seen much else.

I'm a blacksmith and woodworker. I have a primitive blacksmith forge with no electricity and see a couple of possible uses if I can rig them up: Belt grinder, a home brew power hacksaw, and if powerful enough, a sort of mini dragsaw. That last one may be too much to hope for.

I'm especially interested to hear of real examples of people using them for metal or woodworking, but would love to hear some other practical creative uses.

Thanks,

Jeff

That setup would probably be hipster enough that he'd be interested.

Reel in the big ones. Power a table saw or drill press. Pump water or home made generator. Home made submarine or airplane. It's been done. Go cart or mini bike. Power a rocket to the International Space Station. Wood or metal lathe. Heavy duty pencil sharpener. Death Star. Air compressor. Golf cart. Robot.

Good idea for an outdoor forge in Texas.

I have a hand crank blower that had the option of a pulley, but I have it because it's quiet. i want to keep noise to a minimum when forging.
