I bet it would be easier than you think to convert it to one speed. That’s your best value. You probably won’t get much if you part it out.

I’d make it a wood cutting saw as well… just bypass the gear box.

It’s not a simple setup. A belt was moved from one side to the other metal/wood speeds. And the gearbox was imperative to both. The gearbox is shot the blade cannot track and I’d rather be woodworking than playing machinist. I was a auto and forklift mechanic in past lives and have a solution that involves a machine shop but nothing simple. I don’t have enough invested to “go there” Any suggestions on uses for the motor.

Have your say...
