I’m new to this blog scene and find myself at the end of my rope. I own a jts10-DD table saw made by Jet Tools.
It is a direct drive table saw and has been modified to cut 4×8 sheets of plywood.The motor recently died on me and cannot get a replacement for it. Is there anyone out there that has experienced this situation and have you found a solution? I love this saw and I have kept it looking like new, but as with all machines, components don’t last forever. Is there a motor out there that can be retro fitted to the saw so as to continue my wife’s to do list? I’ve been told by
several people just to kick this saw to the curb and buy a new one. To me this is not an option. I’ve owned this saw since 2005 and it has gotten me through till now. I just don’t want to “kick my old friend” to the curb. Any help with this situation would greatly be appreciated.

The JTS10-DD saw is a compact direct drive saw that has a universal motor that’s very likely proprietary to that model, meaning you’ll need an exact replacement if you do replace it. You might be able to repair it (check the brushes and switch contacts), or use another saw as a donor, but it’s probably cost prohibitive to buy a new motor for it even if one is available. If you’re mechanically and electronically inclined, you might be able to rebuild it from off the shelf parts of the same size and values, but I honestly don’t think that saw is worth the effort. Ereplacementparts.com shows the rotor assembly as unavailable.

A full size belt drive contractor saw has more upside potential and is more worth repairing long term if necessary….you might find a good used one for what it’d cost to fix the Jet DD.

How exactly did it ‘die’? Unless you melted/warped the housing, there is a good chance you can get it running again.
