    bought a fairly antique 20" Monarch bandsaw. It came with a gigantic (~16" diameter) 5HP electric motor. I'm not sure a bandsaw of this size needs this much motor, but since I have it, I'll try to use it. The motor appears to be 5HP 3Phase, and probably 1730RPM. It is old enough that I can't...

I'm trying to figure out more about the history of the house and it's age so I'm wondering if anyone knows more about when these types of outlets were used? I did some research and...
