I have an AC motor used as the exhaust fan for a heat pump that I'd like to use to make a disk sander. The motor is 220 VAC, 1 Amp with a speed of (I think) 1750 RPMs. Problem #1 is that my small shop only has 110 VAC.
I've read somewhere that you can run a 220 motor off of 110. If true, how does that affect the current requirements and the running speed.
Also, I'll need a starter capacitor. I have the motor's instructions (not with me at the moment) but how do I determine the capacitor ratings for the lower input voltage?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
