>>HISTORY<<
I purchased this motor from a fellow OWWMer at ArnFest 2007.
No further history is known.

>>MACHINE<<
Sears Craftsman ½hp, 1725rpm, 110/220V, 7.8/3.9A, bronze bearing RI motor, built by Diehl Manufacturing.
Single ¾" diameter keyed shaft.
This motor is huge (~60#) for ½hp.

I plan on using this motor to power a 103.0103 12" Dunlap band saw.
