That is an odd duck.  The 1" LOA is a problem, as most of them are 1-1/4" LOA.  My DMMs use an 11A fuse for 10A measurement (expensive little devils, too), which I would consider for yours too, but th...

I suspect it will cost a lot more to replace those tools, minus the funds from selling them, than it would cost to move them.  And if you know and like your machines, that counts for something.  I lik...

Post: RE: Starter cap voltage?

I don’t know if it’s a dual-voltage motor or single, but 120 or 125V sounds low, especially since 120V power actually has voltage peaks of 170V.  The original was probably 250V or 330V or thereabouts....
