Lets do the simple math guys. 1.25 multiply by 746 equals 932 Watts. As we all know 932 Watts will draw 932 devide by the voltage which is 110 Volts – so the Maximum current at full load is 8.47 Amps. All induction motors draw two to four times the full load current for a brief moment at startup. Hence the (stupid) 22.7A printed on the name plate.

I had the Central Machinery 10” disc sander. the aluminium boss was a lousy fit on the shaft. I tried all of the usual gimmicks to “cure the problem” . I just took it to the dump.
