I have an old Craftsman 4 1/8 joiner/planer, 5/8 hp, model: 149.236221 that the motor just burned up. Sears parts states that the part is no longer available. Does anyone know of a generic replacement or is a new unit the only alternative?
I can't give you the answer as to a direct replacement motor, and that's probably one of the older "real" units. Suggestion: Having "hands-on" working knowledge of having to have older electric motors re-wound---would this be an option for you? In my area we have two really good, locally owned, rewind shops, and a third which is a branch of a larger outfit. If nothing else, take the motor to them with the units serial and model number for an estimate. Good Luck, David
