attached are some pictures of the motor that I have on my Davis Wells bandsaw. I restored this saw awhile back posted pictures. Since then I have ordered some blades 3 skip tooth type from Luis Ittura and have been cutting blanks now and then on it. When cutting much thicker blanks the saw bogs down and can stop cutting at times even if im cutting slow. Luis suggestion is to get a min 2hp motor and a 3-5hp would be best -5400 speed plus - 1740 or 1725 capacitor start - induction run.
So my question or problem is I am a bit confused on what to buy for this bandsaw. I got lost after the hp part of the conversation i guess.......anybody offer some clarity here and pinpoint where i should get another motor ?
