I found a Unisaw with a 3 phase motor. Of course, not only does my house not have 3 phase service, but do to the location of my panelboard (and the fact that I am currently renting), I cannot even get 220V 1PH power to my garage. I have never seen the inside of a Unisaw; could I swap out the current motor with a 110V 1-1/2 HP motor? In a few years once I build my house I will definately have 220V in my garage, but I need something to get me by in the mean time and would love to pick up a Unisaw.

It probably won’t work. They have a special housing with mounts on the housing. You could use a phase converter if you had 220V. I think the old saws even used a different mount system (for the motor) than the new saws. I am not really up on that but there are just a lot of hoops to jump through.

Have your say...
