I've posted a couple times recently about the death of my jointer motor.
The jointer is a nice Jet 6 inch built in the 70s. I think I paid about
$150 for it and use it about a half dozen times a year. Watching CL for
a comparable replacement, but also looking for a source for 3/4 hp
replacement motor. Jet was $236 for theirs plus shipping.
So ... any recommended sources for a rebuilt motor?

I finally found where to turn "OFF" HTML in Thunderbird, and did so ...
just out of curiosity, what is the difference ??? Obviously, it must
be something annoying to others ... what does it do??? For some
reason Thunderbird sets it to "ON" by default, and I just rebuilt this
computer, reinstalling everything, so it got set that way upon installation.

Someone mentioned Yellow Pages and, on your previous post, someone
mentioned taking it to a shop to be evaluated. My local electircal
supply company, which has a department for repairing motors, will, for
free, evaluate any motor and give quotes for repair or replacement.
Shop around for such a company/shop.
Assuming you've done the troubleshooting, as recommended on the
previous thread, check Marathon or Baldor motors, on Amazon, for
comparable replacement motors. I bought a new Unisaw motor at a much
cheaper price, via Amazon, than what Delta, my local shop & Gainger
(also local) wanted.
I think, if you email the specs of your motor to Baldor, they will
match the correct replacement motor.
Sure sounds like you would qualify for a replacement ... check out
Tractor Supply and Northern Tool for replacements. You won't find a
great deal there on a Baldor, but you might find a Marathon or other
slightly lesser quality motor for a fair price.

New industrial / Farm duty (continues duty) motors can be found at farm
supply stores. My local one is called Track Supply (used to be Farm
Also, check with your local motor repair places. I had a 2 HP Leeson
that was flaky. They only charged a $20.00 bench fee to see if they
could fix it.
$236 is probably a good price for an OEM motor. $150.00 for a used Jet
sounds like a very good deal to me. It may qualify for a you suck.
Also, check OWWM.org for Bring Out Your Dead, BOYD forum. Ask if any
one in your area is selling a motor.
