Drug this old polisher out of my to-do pile yesterday. Stripped the base/pedestal last night, and the motor today, with the exception of the data tag.
Any suggestions on cleaning up the data tag? Pretty sure its an aluminum tag and wire wheel would just obliterate it. Would be nice to know mfr and voltage. The bottom tag is a brass inventory control type tag with numbers stamped in it, I will just polish it for some bling
Peeked under the base yesterday, no capacitors under there. From the plug there are 3 wires, 1 goes directly to the motor, other 2 go to the switch. The plug that is on it looks like a 220v dryer/stove type plug, did they make these to run on 220v? Would the lack of capacitors be a clue that its 220v? How would I go about positively identifying what voltage this thing runs on?
I do not think its a 3 phase motor, but could be wrong.
