Do Metabo do spares? It's always worth asking.

Hello,

me thinks it could be rewarding to do some research on motor repair shops. A lot of companies where many electric motors of unusual dimensions or voltages are in use still have a lot of repairs and rewounds done. I am thinking of i.e. mining companies. So there is a good chance to find a small repair shop - having done these jobs for ages - if you ask here and there and everywhere. They generally have reasonable pricing which does not mean cheap.

That is the way my late neighbour got his saw blade sharpening machine fixed he needed to run his sawmill. I still remember the name "Reform", but they are located in the middle of Germany.

"Spares" for a squirrel cage motor? If somebody asked me for a replacement starting winding I would include the running winding, the laminations and the housing. When I have rewound motor's I vacuum impregnated the windings when complete and bake them hard. It's not something you can remove and replace.

I last had a motor (three phase) rewound in 2016. It wasn't cheap, but I had no choice as the motor was specifically made for a machine tool and no other motor would fit or could be adapted. The local company which did the rewind is still in existence.

It might be worth getting a quote from any rewinders local to the OP.
