The belsaw manuals I have seen do not cover conversion of the unit from 220v to 110v.

Where can I get that info?

You can’t generally run a motor over 2 hp on 110 volts. The Belsaw
planer motors are usually 3-5 HP.

If a motor is dual-voltage it usually says so on the information plate on
it and there is often a diagram under the wire access plate which
shows how to wire it for different voltages and sometimes in reverse.

Belsaw machines were often sold without a motor and the end
user would supply it.

You can put a less powerful motor on it if you like.

Have your say...
