Can this tool's motor be changed for 220 (home shop) usage? I may be
able to get this saw for less than $500.
Thanks for the feedback, John.
My shop can handle a 10' , ton & a half tool. There are 2 of these
saws available. There are two Tannewitz RHS 42" Cap. bandsaws
available, as well, nearly as cheaply. I do have my own logs milled
and, at times, I would like to re-saw some of the timbers I have. I
often times think I need a larger bandsaw. I had wondered if these
saws could be set up to accommodate my not-so-normal cutting. I
suspect these saws may not operate at their best if I remove the 3
phase motor and install a 220 motor, if they are adaptable that way.
My shop is for hobby work, ie., at home, not an industrial setting, so
I would need to convert the electricals.
The best you could hope for is 5hp on a single phase
motor at 220. I suspect that would work fine but
are you aware of the blade cost for a 36" saw ???
You could screw around with a rotary phase converter
Go over to http://www.owwm.org and ask around.
I suspect that has already been done(several times)
by some of the guys over there....
Tannewitz is deluxe old iron and treasured by many folks.
That's a $7,000 table saw....

FWIW, there's a 7.5 HP single phase Baldor on ebay right now--draws more
than 30 amps IIRC. Leeson also lists single-phase motors with up to 10
How difficult they would be to fit to the Tannewitz I have no idea, but
given access to a machine shop and a good stock of scrap just about
anything can be cobbled.
"motor be changed for 220"
I've seen a device that converts "household" 220VAC to drive a 3PH
motor. As I real, it was some sort of motor itself. The client got rid of it
when we got her new shop - cannot recall why.
Suspect the converter might cost you as much as the saw in this case -
google "three phase converter"
