The motor on my bandsaw gave up all its smoke the other day.
Do they make a 1.5” x 1/2 pulley?
If I put the 2” pulley and a 7” pulley my blade speed with be about 8-900 ipm as opposed to the current 660.
Can I run it safely at that speed?
Is it just better to return the motor and get the slower speed motor that is about 2x as expensive?
