    Default Table saw motor required

    Ever had that feeling that you can't throw something away....because it served you well!

    My no name brand 10" table saw motor decided to give up on me....but I refuse to give up on the saw!

    So here is my dilemma - I thought it may be the capacitor that packed up, but a 2nd opinion states that it could be the commentator that "burned". So where do I find a replacement motor in Cape Town or surrounds?

    Is there someone that has done a DIY rebuild on such a saw?

    Can't the motor be repaired?
    1996 Patrol 4.2SGL with lots of stuff to make it heavier and thus increase traction?

    Peter,
    My knowledge about elect motors is not enough to answer that question!
    I don't know where to begin with such a challenge....!
    I am willing to learn, but not by electricuting myself!

    So 9/10 that will be an induction motor which has no commutator.

    When you turn the motor on does it hum?
    If so, with the blade removed, spin by hand and it should start.
    If it starts it it s the starting capacitor.

    Hi Andrew,
    This seems to be the 1/10 - definitely not an induction motor.
    I stripped it and it has brushes, but the brown ceramic block capasitor was lying loose in the back housing. I am unsure where it was connected!

    J Schipper & Sons in Stikland - ek het hulle in die verlede gebruik vir my fabriek se 3fase motors.
    Hulle kan uitruil of herstel.

    Electra rewinders - het gehoor hulle is goedkoper en diens ook puik, maar nog nie self gebruik nie

    Interesting my money would also have been on an induction motor. So its an Universal motor , or series wound motor I have only ever seen them used a smaller hand held tools, never on a table saw.

    What is the size of the motor ?

    It's a 13/4 hp 5A motor.

    Had it scrutinized by an knowledgeable guy today...the armature is toast!

    Something came loose and fell on the commutator and melted the armature wiring....so it is gone and cannot be fixed.

    Now I need to apply my mind to an economical fix, but i still don't know where to source a motor

    The damn saw was so HANDY! My budget won't allow for a new saw replacement AT THIS STAGE!

    Ryobi also use a brush motor. If owners want to maintain it check the brushes as mine used up it's one brush after serving me well for 10 years.

    My neighbor has one very similar that also needed a motor. He picked up and old swimming pool pump motor on Gumtree for R500. Almost fitted straight in. Had to make a few small mods but the saw now works better than it did before.

    @Dirkba

    Just make sure that you maintain the correct peripheral speed of the blade.

    Guys thanks for all the feedback and moral support!

    Other forums have a "Pay it forward" section. We have "Pass it on before I toss it"

    And then we have the silent observers in the wings...

    All my headaches have been taken care of by a good Samarithan.

    LCamper offered me his new (never been used) Ryobi - this forum has once again shown me the goodwill between its members!

    I am really blessed and thankfull!
