is difficult to measure, but it appears to be much closer to 3/4", so
it's likely 5/8th if those are the two choices.
I have a local dealer.
One morning it just stopped working. I turned it on and the motor just
produced a grumbly hum. I've tried replacing rhe capacitor--no change. I
can rotate the axle by hand without any difficulty. The switch seems OK.
The shaft does not move in and out. Very strange. I've had it 4-5
years and I'd be surprised if I've put 4 hours on it.
not in terms of motors. The guy at our (only) local repair shop is so
busy he didn't have the time to give me the time of day. I think I'll go
for the new one, and see what I can do about repairing the old one
myself. At least I'll have a lot of wire. :-)
For such a little amount of use it probably doesn't make much sense to
buy a replacement motor. Particularly when you can get a reconditioned
9" Delta bandsaw for $80 delivered through Amazon. You'll pay more
than that for the motor thorugh Grainger or Delta and you'll have to
deal with tax and/or shipping.
