Bought to replace failed motor on my drill press. Works great. Bolted right on.

It works just fine. I turned an old drill-press into a buffer and polisher.

Good Replacement for my old South Bend Lathe 03/06/2019 10:07:32 PM

Got this as a replacement for my original motor on my South Bend lathe. First choice was to keep original but the cost to rewind was "very" cost prohibitive. With only slight modifications this motor bolted right on and has performed well. Not as smooth as my original motor but I'm of the opinion none of the modern motors will be because there too light. The old heavy cast iron casings dampened the vibration. So, I'd have to assume this is as good as it gets. It's also a lot less than equivalent motor from other suppliers.

I bought a 1931 lathe without motor or pulley, this allowed me to get it up and running. It also close to original for size and speed.

My son was building a sanding table for building guitars and this motor was highly recommended to power the sanding wheel. I purchased it for him and am very pleased. This motor is exactly what was described and fits my need perfectly!

Good product 11/08/2017 12:21:07 PM

The product arrived with damage to the box and the packaging inside the box had fallen apart resulting in a couple of small scratches on the motor. This however did not impact the function of the motor which works as it should. Overall satisfied with this product.

Exactly as advertised 06/02/2017 2:09:24 AM

Works better than the old, tired ½HP motor it replaced. Very happy to have my exhaust blower back in operation.
