Sears Master Craftsman ¾ hp repulsion-induction motor.
Bronze bearings, dual voltage, and Klixon thermal protection manual reset switch.
This is a very large frame motor.

>>HISTORY<<
Purchased from a fellow OWWMer who brought it to me at ArnFest 2015.
I trimmed two #10-32 machine screws to plug the oil ports in the front and rear end bells.
Briefly used to run a Delta 6" jointer--decided it was too large for the application.

UPDATE-July 2017:
I no longer own this motor--sold to a fellow OWWMer.
