howdy all, first post….but have been lurking for a spell here…

anyway on with my dilemma..

I recently bid on a damaged box due to shipping that was billed as “Shopfox W1812” which when looked up is a “Variable Speed Planer/Moulder”
well I won it, however, it ended up only being ‘box 2 of 2’...and the top with the planer/moulder and everything else was ‘box 1 of 2’ which was nowhere t be seen…

so I ended up with the stand , that has the motor (2HP, 220V), magnetic switch and some other electronics which other that some scratches appears to be complete, garish paint job and stickers and all.

not sure what to do with it.

It recently rained a few old c-man 10” TS w/motors (a 113.22411 and 113.27610) in my area for cheap and i grabbed them both

the question being is it a dumb idea of combining old c-man 10” TS with this stand?

this motor is probably better suited for a lathe or band saw due to variable speed right? and the 10” c-mans came with 1hp motor is think.

im totally willing to throw some coin at this, as I am using an old c-man 8” TS (103.22161) as main table saw and a 10” would set me right I figure, but i dont want to be a big dummy, and waste what looks to be a great motor/stand, ha

thanks guys,

Sorry “unclepunchy”, but I am afraid that THAT is why there are so many stories and TV shows about “greed” and “eyes bigger than your stomach” and such…

Anyways, good luck with your pursuits… Sorry, I can be of no help here.

Make one good TS out of the two C-mans. Keep the 2hp variable speed setup for when you find an older planer/molder that needs rebuilding.

It’s the feed motor on those that is variable
speed I think. What you have is likely a plain
old standard speed motor. You can check the
plate on it to see the RPM rating.

Have your say...
