Topic tags/keywords: ras radial arm saw rockwell delta rehab repair motor electrical

I picked up a sander yesterday off of CL and the man offered me a non-working RAS just to get it out of the way because he is moving. I brought it home and freed up all of the components and I think the problem is the wiring going into the motor. The wiring is dry rotted and the wires are exposed and I think shorted out at some point. He said he was cutting and it just quit so it makes sense. It doesn’t have a box on the motor but the wires go right in above where the cooling slots are. I tried to pull that end of the motor off but stopped when it wouldn’t come freely. I am going to have to get in there to replace the wiring but I wonder if it is a better job for a professional. I know wood and mechanical but not electrical. Does anyone have any idea on how to rewire this motor without me screwing it up. Thanks.

According to the parts diagram, doesn’t look too difficult to get to:

I saw that. But to be honest it doesn’t make much sense. At least to me!!! LOL!! I’ll try it again this afternoon. I’ll post a pic showing where I get stuck.

The brake was holding the motor on. Broke off the dry pieces of wire covering and put shrink wrap on them, New wire ends and it runs awesome.

Have your say...
