Topic tags/keywords: saw motor craftsman 113

I recently acquired a Craftsman 113 in EXCELLENT shape except it came without a motor.

Will this motor work on this saw?

Ironton Compressor-Duty Electric Motor — 2 HP, 3450 RPM, 115/230 Volts, Single Phase, Model# 119573.00

I would not use an open vented compressor rated motor.

I found a replacement motor for my old Craftsman 113 at Grizzly for a good price. Matched the original specs exactly.

Maybe you’re not as tight fisted as me, but why not check craigslist and the other sites like it to see if someone is selling a 113 saw that’s in terrible condition but has a good motor, or is possibly selling just the motor from one? I checked my local craigslist and there’s someone selling the motor from a 113 saw for $75 (although it is from a flex drive model so it turns in reverse of what you want).

I am in the same dilema as you as my motor just decided to give up. The current motors on our saws are open drip style and have been for years. A tefc motor are beneficial in that they are technically “sealed” from debris but your if you keep the open motor clean out on occasion I feel you won’t have any problems. I am currently picking up my new motor this afternoon and it is a open drip and I will just maintain like I have in the past.
