Thank you Dan. Think I’ll enlist my pal who knows a lot more about motors when I do it as it sounds like the motor is unique to the manufacturer and I’d kick myself if I created a new problem. That’s one reason to buy a Unisaw: wide parts availability. That said, don’t think I’d find one for $600 in my area -and certainly not as in as good a shape as this one.

I’ll wait until I get the 220 line installed (hopefully in the next few days) and see how she runs first. There were some missing set screws in the arbor pulley. After I blow out the motor I then have to figure out where the table shim goes. The one that I didn’t note when I removed the table for transport during the purchase.

One problem at a time, right?

Appreciate your advice.
