« Part 5: Dust collection Part 6 of Late 1800's 12" Frank H. Clement jointer series no next part

Fresh paint and new bearings means the 1930’s era motor should be good for a few more decades!

All that can be seen in the video, is a view from the floor.

Yup. All this video shows is the motor being turned on and off.

How much of the motor did you have to rebuild? I have a grinder motor that need repair, but no idea how to do it.

Aside from replacing the bearings, there isn’t much of a rebuild that an amateur can do. There are literally just three moving parts in a 3ph motor. Two of them are the bearings.
