We have our new motor installed. It works fine and with some very minimal mod we were able to get our Grizzly back up and running after burning out the previous Grizzly motor.
The Leeson motor is made as a Unisaw motor replacement. I had not heard or read of anyone doing this so thought I would pass the info along. It is more likely no one will ever have to replace their cabinet saw motor unless you buy older equipment like I do.
Oh yeah, the Grizzly has a good fence I stole off of an older 80s model PM66 and now it has a 4 hp Unisaw motor. This saw is getting better with age :)
As a side note, I have an active bid on an older model 24” Delta planer, hopefully I win the bid. I also bid on an older Rockwell 14” bandsaw, both bid with a local school district. The planer will be nice if we win it because we will then have a dedicated planer, now the Woodmaster shares duties.
