One HP Motor Needed

Recommended Posts

I picked up a 1 HP 1750 RPM motor from AutomationDirect.com which is local to me but they do ship of course. As I recall is was just over 100.00 While it is a chinese motor, what I like about it is the foot. It is not tack welded on like most, but oversize and attached with 6 machine screws. It seemed to get a bit too hot hooked up to 120 but when wired 220 seems to do fine.

Thanks for the replies. Both Surplus Center and Automation Direct have great buys. Check out Surplus Center's catalogue online. It's a blacksmith's candy store. rLarkin: My surplus LG can be yours for 1750 before I put motor on and tinker with it. It is a really clean frame with NO cracks or welded spots. The drawing dies look like they have had little use. Sell it to you on time.....You would have to drive up here to Oregon...
