I've learned to have low expectations with Harbor freight stuff, thus try not to be disappointed when It doesn't work. this doesn't always work, so I always try to source from Grizzly. As both sources are available locally, I generally never would buy something like a motor from Harbor freight.
Motor needed for a 10" table saw. Present dead motor is a Craftsman 2 hp that has den on the saw for 35 yrs. not long after warranty was out I smoked the starter cutting 2" oak, had a motor shop install an electronic starter. It has worked well since. Now that I am ," retired" I don't anticipate using it as much as I did in the wood flooring business.
Thanks for your thoughts.
I had a 5hp motor on my air compressor after about5 hrs of running sparks and smoke came out of the back end. since I had bought the insurance I got another motor this one has been on the compressor for 10 yrs. so its hit or miss. I have a 7.5 hp motor thatI installed on my lathe. has worked fine for years. bill
