Hi all I have a few questions about motors. When I got my Powermatic 50 for Xmas it came with a 3ph 1hp TEFC Marathon motor, magnetic switch and the seller threw in a 1ph 1hp Wagner compressor motor since I don’t have access to 3ph power. During the restoration process I muddled over just getting a paddle starter and a new 2hp motor to start with a clean slate and increase performance a bit. Well I pulled the trigger and picked them pup the other day so now I’m left with 2 motors and a mag switch. I figured I’d try and sell the stuff on CL to cover the costs of the new motor and paddle switch. Could anyone give me a decent ballpark price of what I should ask for them?
I was thinking
Package deal – $175
Let me know if I’m way to high or low I want to be more than reasonable but also leave a little room for haggeling without getting taken to the cleaners. In the end I just want to sell the stuff for an honest price to recoup the money I put in the restoration.
PS if anyone here is interested I’m in the Detroit, MI area.
