I’ve been looking for a replacement motor for my C’man 113.298030 TS. With that, I’ve been scouring the web looking for motors.
Not sure how many people are aware, all motors have a “frame” # or designation. This frame # has to do with the dimensions of critical components of the motor, ie; length, width, height, shaft size, mounting bolt locations and the list goes on. Depending upon the application, motors of differing frame #’s could be interchanged. There may need to be some tweaking of the mounting holes or the like, but if other aspects are compatible, a motor of a differing frame # could possibly be substituted.
With that said, I found a website that has a gadget to compare two different frame #’s. You type in the OEM motor frame #, then enter the frame # of the replacement motor under consideration, click the “match” button and the gadget does the rest. It gives a 0 to 100 rating on the compatability of the motor frames and it lists the differences. Quite a handy little “gadget”.
I just thought I’d pass this along. I thought those folks restoring/rehabing machines or building shop made machines could find this helpful.
