JayT is right^. Particularly about the table saw. The added weight of the motor will put too much stress on the arbor and trunions. Might be okay on your BS if the motor is not mounted directly to the housing but, it’s also wayyyy overkill for a 14” bandsaw. My advice would be to tuck that motor away until you have a use for it. Or, if you’re not happy with your current TS, keep an eye out for a cabinet saw that is missing the motor.
