Going from 220v to 110v

I was given a jointer that it wired 220 but i only have 110. The motor is a baldor L3509 and it says it has 115v-208/230 so i think that means i should be able to rewire and plug it into 110v. Do i need to change only the plug or do i have to change something on motor itself?

Just a reminder, if it drew 9 amps at 240 it will draw 18 at 120. Does the circuit have capacity?
Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.

Follow the Low connection, depending on rotation, and you should be in good shape.
Full load amps at 115 V is 11.8.
