Topic tags/keywords: unisaw rebuild unisaw motor

First, let me start, I’m new here at the forum. I have seen people’s work on here and have been super impressed! Lots of skill, knowledge and talent among this forum. So, I figured one of you fine people could help me with my problem.

I bought a unisaw a couple years ago. It needed some work and had been built from leftover parts from other saws. The list of repairs is,
-brazed broken front trunnion
-fabricated new brass bullets
-fabricated new lock knobs for hand wheels
-replaced arbor bearings
-rewired with 12-3 wire
-new start and run caps
-split motor and replaced bearings

Which brings me to my problem

After I split the motor, I took pictures, but, had a mishap with iCloud, and they are gone.

I have 1 green washer, it’s a hard almost phenolic, or old pcb fiberglass type material. I can’t figure out where it goes in the motor. Does it go in between the centrifugal switch and contact? Does it go between the bearing and switch? Or does it even go on the armature assembly at all? I’m at a loss here and would really like to be making sawdust again.

Thanks for reading all this, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Mayabe a picture of the spec plate on the motor would help getting started.

Well, I guess I’ll do that when I get home. But, it’s just a 3hp, single phase motor.

Have your say...
