I wasn’t wrong the first time. That motor can be wired for 110 without a rewind! Unless it is uniquely made for a specific application the windings in a 220 motor and a 110 motor are the same. They are all made for 110v. In a 220 application they are wired in series and in a 110 application they are wired in parallel regardless of what the name plate says. I don’t know a guy lol I am the guy! I have REWIRED dozens of motors that were only single voltage and or single rotation to be dual voltage reversible. I do not rewind them I just find the non user serviceable connections and bring them out. If you were careful enough to read rather than judge I mentioned that the rating was at “full load”. I have set up a demonstration for just exactly what is being discussed: 2 and 3 hp table saws side by side with an amp meter during the cut on the same material they are within an amp of each other.(the same blade was switched from saw to saw as well.) I was just relaying the facts. You kind of introduced the question, I answered with applicable information If you are interested I would be happy to help you. Trying to make my answer wrong when you don’t have an answer at all is just reading material.
