Default Re: Vintage 1/4 horsepower induction motor

Ted, John, Lucien,

Thank you all for your quick and helpful responses and your interest! Sadly it will be next Thursday before I can take more photos, but I’ll post some as soon as I can.

I agree it’s probably a very old motor and probably of a design that was quickly superseded. Any info from old catalogues would be extremely helpful!

I would very much like to get this old motor running, as it’s got ball bearings and seems very conservatively rated - as you said, Ted, plenty of life in it yet.

Thanks again all, pics will follow.
