I am brand new to this forum and I have been looking on it for approx. 2 hours. I have seen a ton of great educated comments. Now to my problem: I have 10" Hitichi Table Saw and need a new Motor. The motor from a parts store cost $549. I could buy new! Any recommendations on motors? I have a 115 volts out to my garage with a 20 amp outlet. Thanks for any suggestions. Dave
Most times when you buy a replacement part from the manufacturer they get a very premium price. I suggest you remove the motor and take it to a local electric motor repair shop. Look in the yellow pages under "Electric Motors", the shop will know what they are doing but basically you want the same rpm, same diameter arbor, same rotation, same HP rating at the same rpm, and then make sure it will mount correctly. I would think that you should be able to do considerably better on the price.
