Is there any projects a 1 to 1 1/2 hp table saw motor would be good for? Or should I just give that to the scrap collectors too.

I have a delta shopmaster ts200ls table saw with a broken fence.
It wasn’t good for much so when the fence broke I upgraded to a cabinet saw.
So now it is just taking up space I now need.

I’d keep it around if it’s in good shape. It’s likely a TEFC motor which is desirable in woodworking tools. Never know when you’ll get a steal on a drill press or jointer or belt grinder without a motor. I’m a bit of a packrat though so take it for what it’s worth… ;-)

Just remember that a TS motor is not rated for continuous duty (mostly).

I guess not being continuous duty and a universal motor kind of makes it unlikely I could make a tool out of it.

Depends on the tool. Would work for a drill press or jointer.
