Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw

Just took my table saw to a place to get looked at. I thought it would be a faulty reset switch but ends up the motor is shot. How much do motors usually cost? Its an older, probably 10 years or so, Delta 10” table saw. Thanks

You should be able to get the motor specs off of the plate on the motor and match it up on Grainger or Leeson I would think.

Have it rebuilt?? May be less expensive than new.

The local motor shops told me, anything under 50 hp is not worth the money to have rebuilt.

Brian is correct. I change motors all the time and if the cost of rebuild is more than half that of a new, it isnt worth it because baking the motor significantly reduces the life of the motor. I would see this as an opportunity for…........MORE POWER!!!! Yep check out my projects and see my saw with a 3hp motor on my Ridgid saw. Other than that Grainger has decent prices and availability. Like Cato said, the motor specs might be on the motor, but if not measure the frame the motor mounts on and the shaft size. The voltage and rpm are critical. Its probably 120 volts and about 3400rpm. THese are pretty standard. Let us know wha you do.
