We can only wish the electricians used the electronic codes.
The colors to numbers for this motor follow:
Blue = 1
White = 2
Orange = 3
Yellow = 4
Black = 5
Red = 8
Brown = J
I did have to swap the Black 5 wire with the Red 8 wire to
make the mortor turn the blade correctly. Otherwise I followed the
the motor's electric box cover.
I bought a 10 AWG extension cable. Pieces of it became the power cord
and the cable from the electric box I added, to the motor. The added
electric box, which I bolted to the outside over one of the existing
of the base cabinet, contains the connections between the power cord,
motor; two duplex outlets (since it had the space and the magnetic
light over the
table needed an outlet); and a compression fitting for the power cord.
motor can draw 18 Amps, I put the 20 Amp plug on the power cord. It
looks like a
regular plug with one of the blades rotated 90 degrees. I had a 20 Amp
outlet for the lathe. Since in this one man shop, the bandsaw will not
run at the
same time as the lathe, I ran conduit from the lathe outlet to a new
the bandsaw. The motor mount had to move to accomodate the fan end of
motor, which then required moving the bandsaw on the top of the base
to keep the pulleys in alignment.
Summary, the bandsaw now cuts as it should cut and not as it cut with a
.75 HP motor.
