This motor is not for sale or trade here, nor is it mine. Seen on the local C'list in Buffalo, NY. This is a Sears Roebuck & Co. badged motor and given the "Power Chief" model/name. There are no other motors with this type of badge here under Sears Roebuck & Co. or under the Craftsman or Power Chief names. It powers a Delta DP 220 (drill press). I am trying to get better and more photos.

I've been told by the site historian, that "Sunlight Motors" may have made this motor? If anyone else can confirm this, that would be interesting to read about.
