Topic tags/keywords: resource tip table saw motor tools motors rotation reversal

Hey all you Lumber jocks, I’m in need of some direction (no pun intended) in the he process of reversing the rotation of a motor I’m switching to retro fit a 10” craftsman TS. It’s has a schematic printed on the motor housing but when I open the wiring housing to access the connections they are in a circuler postition on the end of what I think is a capiciter?
The problem is the diagram is numbered in a stacked layout and getting the right colors to match up with their schematic…. Not wanting to get shocked or damage the wiring…. Anyone able yo help guide a “none electrical” wood worker?! It’s not my cup of tea!

-- .... I'd rather do this than work for a living!

Yup – pictures – particularly of the motor data plate and the wiring junction box. From the sounds of it, you are looking at the capacitor, not the wiring box.

”.....switching to retro fit a 10” craftsman TS” – is it a vintage saw? Can you just turn the motor around or put the pulley on the opposite end? Have you got a stand built?

Have your say...
