This planer was built loooooooong before the Craftsman/Ridgid fake
horsepower wars, and as far as I know 7.5 hp was the most you could
reasonably get on 220v single phase. (Unless it's like Grizzly, where
you can get 3 hp out of 110 volts, but it requires 800 amps...)
Can you please check this one again? And maybe post a pic of the
motor's spec plate?
