In the owner's manual for my (new to me) Delta TS (36-841), it says:
"This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be protected
with a 20 Amp time lag fuse."
Not being aware of this detail until now, I was just going to use a
regular 20-Amp circuit-breaker (I ran #12 wire). Please advise. Thank you!
In trying to answer my question, I learned that
"all circuit breakers are "time delay" by nature of their design."
So, I guess we'll see what happens...
Progress in the shop is continuing after a delay or two in recent years
caused by major events.

Yes, in the circuit external to the motor but not if the motor itself
is considered. The voltage across each winding is 120V and the
current in each is 10A, whether it's wired as 120V (parallel windings)
or 240V (series).

Even though this is not DC...Ohm's Law says your theory is wrong. I=E/R,
if you double the voltage you halve the current. Also, wattage would prove
that out. The same motor wired 240, would draw half what it did on 120. On
single phase, the neutral (white or ground) is the center-tap of the power
transformer. That's why it's half the voltage.
