I finally brought home my Delta/Rockwell sander,
The motor was a 3450 RPM 3 phase motor and I could not easily find the motor
I wanted in 3450 RPM single phase. I decided on a 1.5HP 1725 RPM Leeson cap
start cap run motor with a manual reset overload. This required a larger
pulley but was not a problem to source.
I will be mounting the new mag starter inside the stand and using the
original remote on/off buttons.
I could probably just switch the motor and start using the machine, but I am
going to tear it down and paint it, replace the bearings, etc.
I was hoping for an older one, but 6 years is a long enough time to be

A useful tool which should be in every woorworker's/metalworker's shop.
The 6x48 belt/12 disk was the first machine I bought new.
I had used the 12 disk model in H.S. metal shop in the 1950s.
