Topic tags/keywords: table saw motor 10322171 craftsman

I installed a 1hp. motor on my 103.22171 but it is not the sealed type motor and every once in a while it starts to act up so I have to blow the dust out of the housing and it’s fine again. It is a pump type motor. I went to HD and bought a pack of those filter covers that go over a wet/dry vac filter, {they are held on with a band of some sort] and fashioned a “hairnet” cover for the motor and it works great.

My question is, can the fan inside the motor be reversed so that the inlet and filter is on the dumb end, instead of the business end???? This sure would make things easier!!!

I think not but you will have to disassemble the motor and see if parts are welded in place or held by something else. I think you will find them fixed. Does the motor cool well with the filter? Heat is a bad thing for motors but I suppose you don’t run it continuously for hours.

Agree With “Grandpa”’ I think you’re asking for trouble IE Excess Heat!

The commo guys in my USMC unit used stockings (panty hose) to keep sand/dust out of the radio gear. Seemed to work oK. And heat wasn’t an issue, even in 110*+ heat.

I have no idea where they got the pany hose…....I was afraid to ask. LOL. But it worked.
Just an idea.

When I was in the service they didn’t want us to even paint an electric motor. Makes them overheat. I have just tried to stick with that over the last 45 years.

Thanx, You are probably correct Rick and Grandpa, if the motor ran continuously but that is hardly the case. Specially in my poorly heated shed.
