Don’t know about the bullet motor, but I’m surprised that would be a universal motor. Unisaws normally have induction motors. I’m puzzled what would be making sparks.

Okay, I looked at the bullet motor repair, and in the immortal words of Popeye, “Well blow me down.” Did not know there would be brushes on an induction motor. Maybe has to do with the “repulsion” part of the technology? I do remember 50 years ago having a repulsion/induction motor on a Rockwell TS, but never really understood what that meant.
