Topic tags/keywords: powermatic table saw model 62

Hey everyone! I was just looking at an ad for a 1978 Powermatic model 62 table saw and I am having trouble finding more information about it. I was hoping someone might be able to help me out with figuring some things out. First, I have no idea how big the motor is on this, but I know it is wired for 220. Is it possible to rewire it back to 110? I also can’t find any reviews on this saw, but since its a Powermatic I assume its pretty good. I would really appreciate any feedback anyone has on this saw. Thanks!

As far as rewiring the motor, it depends on the HP. Some motors can be wired either way. I found another 62 online and it can be wired 110. It is a contractors saw, lighter weight, but could be a decent saw. Depends on the condition and the price.

You might try vintage machinery. I don’t know if this will help. they do have lots of info.
