Need condensatori or capacitor for mini max bandsaw

I have a 230 volt single phase 1.8 hp mini max S45 band saw and am looking for a capacitor the name plate on the motor says its a 35 MF but I have not been able to find that number on the comar sites I have visited ( Comar is the mfg. of the capacitor. Can anybody help?

So you are looking for 35 Milli Farad capacitor, voltage rating is also important, do you have the owners manual? motor manufacturer? Is the voltage rating on the capacitor?
Digikey would probably have a cap that would work https://www.digikey.com/

Look also for 35 uf, 35 mfd or 35 mf in the voltage range needed. Don't work about the brand name. Carefully remove the leads from the existing capacitor, short out the terminals to discharge it. Measure it and compare its size to the ones you find advertised.
If you cannot do this, don't mess with it further. Get someone who knows what they are doing to make the repair.

Is it something like this or does it have only two connections? Finding a capacitor should be relatively trivial but, in my experience, finding one that fits perfectly in the provided space can be tricky.
If you can examine (carefully,with the mains disconnected!) the existing capacitor and can find the manufacturers name and model your work should be simple.

Interesting that he's said the manufacturer's name and two answers say "find out the manufacturer's name". The manufacturer's name that he mentioned is "Comar", which is an Italian manufacturer of motor and lighting capacitors. <https://www.comarcond.com/en/
Looking at their catalog, they seem to have two ranges of motor capacitors, MK450 and MK450A with the major difference appearing to be that one is rated for 10,000-30,000 hours and other for 1000-3000 hours.
<https://www.comarcond.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/MKA-450-1.pdf
Column 2 of the tables for the MK450 and MK450A series is highlighted in blue and marked "CN (uF)" at the top. This is the column where one would look for the capacitance.
Note the Pcs x bag column, it seems that they only sell directly in lots of 50, so it will probably be necessary to buy from a distributer--they should be able to identify a distributer in your area for you.
Note that if the size, connectors, voltage, and capacitance match, you can use any brand. If you can't find one where the voltage matches you can use one for a higher voltage if it physically fits and has the same capacitance.

Ahh. I took Comar to be the maker of the saw itself.

MF = Micro Farad.
Motor capacitors are common, just find a 35MF (or more likely 35uF) capacitor of the same or higher voltage (should be listed on the part), most important is finding one that will fit.
