Hello. Recently while cleaning out my fiances parents garage, As they went to a retirement home. I stumbled on 2 older electric motors. They both work. One is a craftsman 1hp, 1 phase, 60cycle, 3450 rpm 115/230v Model# 113.19092 Frame is K573BXBN Style 341 also has the number M51 like a serial number. Its in excellent shape for the year i belive it was made. 1953 Sears n Roebuck. I know it has scrap value. But as i said its in really nice shape. And i would sincerly be intrested to know its true value? And maybe find it a new home. With someone that needs it to recreate history. Any info would be apreciated. Also have a franklin electric motor but isnt in as good a shape. 1hp and all that. Thank you for any information on this subject. Her dad would apreciate it if we found it a new home. sincerly ~ Jesta

1 hp capacitor start motors can realistically sell for $50 or so on Craigslist.
Put an ad up and be patient because it may take awhile to sell one or both.

If the motors are older styles, like repulsion motors, they have no resale
value.

Selling on ebay they’ll go for a lot less because motors are heavy and
shipping them is costly.

The delivery cost will be a problem on such items which might well outway the sale value. Still here’s hoping you do well. Alistair

its in really nice shape

I was thinking of the Craftsman guys that have to have an old Craftsman motor for their old machines. I think Ebay works here because of the pictures going out nation wide. In my area the travel costs could be as much as the shipping. I’ve had a hard time interesting people with my old Craftsman stuff on CL.

Loren- I enjoy the search-fu finds that you share. I live in the ‘salt belt’, so I like to travel south to buy cars. Now I use SearchTempest. Someday I’ll try something more advanced . -Jack
