No, if you take a motor that is able to be wired for either voltage, the
current *in normal operation* at 240V is roughly half that of the
current at 120V.
Now if you leave it wired for 120V and feed it 240V, I bet the current
is going to be even more yet! (for a brief period of time)
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
No, if the motor were connected at 120 volts, the current would double what
it would be if the same motor was connected for 240 volt. Bud is referring
to a dual voltage motor, not suggesting connecting 240 volts to a motor
wired for 120 volts, which would smoke the windings.
