    I thnk the name label for any PowerMatic tool costs more than $125.00.
    Don't change a thing with the tool, bring in the 220V.

    That's an excellent price if it's all there, it runs, the beds/fence slide and lock freely, and no cracks. For that price I wouldn't worry too much about the knives.

    Yes get it. Most likely you wont have to change the motor just rewire it to 110
    It could be worse You could be on fire.
    Stupid hurts.

    Please do NoT change the motor!! For that price run 220/240V to your shop.

    Maybe barter with an electrician... many out there that will work with you.. just ASK!!
