I'm new to wood working, and just inherited a vintage table saw from my Father in Law. It has a motor on it which is a 115/230V that is currently wired for 230V. I don't have a 230V circuit in my garage to handle it, so I would like to rewire to 115V.
I opened the terminal cover in hopes of finding wiring instructions, and the only thing I can find is a diagram for reversing the motion. Needless to say, I can't find a manual for the motor, and haven't been able to source one through Sears or internet sites such as vintage machinery.org.
The model number is 115.19250, and it's a 115/230V 1hp capacitor start type. Does anyone here have any ideas where I could find a wiring guide, or know which winding terminals I would move?
Re: I want to rewire an old Craftsman table saw motor
Yeah, I was expecting to swap winding leads, and was glad to see that jumper setup.
I was really happy my FIL gave me this unit (as well as quite a few more older power tools). I had to drag this stuff more than a thousand miles back home, but it was well worth the trip. I totally agree that older tools are of far better quality than the Chinese made junk that's out there today. The fact that it can last 50 years and be as functional as the day it was built says a lot about the quality of build.
