Hi everyone. Picked up a old dewalt saw model mbe reference number 205 serial number 170127
Just wanting some information on it got it for free however the guy said it trips the breaker has been converted to 110 and bearing has gone out on it. I plan on tearing into the motor to replace the bearing and then brushing off the rust. Thank you for any help.

Take a look here:

Lots of good information on all the dewalt RAS models. You can also check out the old woodworking machines site for the manual and other publications. My AMF runs well, so I don’t have any experience tearing it apart, sorry.

I think that’s probably a 3 phase saw, and if true that would explain tripping the breaker on 110V. (is there a label on the motor?) I would really suggest following up on joining the Dewalt RAS forum that Adam suggested, and maybe the OWWM forum as well. If it’s 3 phase you will need a converter of some kind to run it, best choice would be a VFD.
