Direct drive Leeson 5 hp motor, 240v, 1ph. (not original). The original Babbet bearings were abandoned and Fafner bearings added. It has a LOVEJOY coupling between the motor and main shaft. The top is cast. The reason for the wood block, is because the main shaft was elevated to get above the existing Babbet bearing. All of this work was done prior to my ownership. I have debated trying to restore it, but the top covers to the Babbet bearings are long gone. If I don’t restore it, I may just eventually get a BYRD cutter head for it. Rob
