Topic tags/keywords: jet 1014 replacement motor

Bought a used Jet 1014 lathe recently. After working on several pieces, I noticed a slight odor coming from the motor windings. On this forum, several folks indicated the starting capacitor might be the problem. I found a near-equivalent at the local Grainger store and replaced that first. The motor started and ran slightly better but torque is still not the same so I suspect the winding are burned.

One of the parts websites lists the Jet JWL1220-135 motor as a mechanical equivalent and it’s 3/4 hp! Has anyone tried this option? It’s a bit spendy (~$327 at Jet) but am tempted to bite the bullet and go for the add’l hp.

Otherwise, I’d really like to find a used JWL-35 from a 1014 motor (or JWL1220-135) to minimize the cost. Does anyone possibly have one they’re interested in selling after upgrading to variable speed?

Any guidance appreciated … thanks, Richard

Trip to electric motor shop for rebuild might be the least expensive option!

You’re already buying stuff from Graingers. If you can’t find a motor there, you ain’t ever gonna find one. ............ Jerry (in Tucson)
