Somewhat related, but an honest question.

My dad had a C-man that he bought new in the early ‘70s. It passed down to me and I have since given it to my brother in-law and bought a Unisaw. But in the ‘80s he had the magic smoke happen. I think it’s a 1.5 or 1.75 horse. He just took it off and had it rebuilt and it’s running fine today. Are there no shops that do this anymore? Seems that in my area they’ve all dried up except for very large motors. But I’ll be the 1st to admit I wouldn’t have a clue even where to look. I guess break out the old paper yellow pages? Same goes for alternators and starters. Used to be that you could drop them off most anywhere and come back and pick it up all fixed and ready to go.

My Unisaw came from a vo-tech, so it just has to have a ton of runtime on it. I was contemplating going through it while I had the top off, but it runs fine, and it’s easy enough to get off, so I didn’t bother. I’ll just do it when that time comes.
