I have two restorations coming up that will need 2hp motors or bigger.
I have a Delta LD Shaper in my shop I traded for. It has a Dayton 2hp reversible motor on it. Assuming I can't find a vintage motor this would be a good choice for either machine. I have a bit more in this one than I would want to part it out. But a new motor is going to cost more than I have in it.
Which boils down to how much demand is there for an LD shaper, whole or parts? Anyone here even have an LD? Need parts?
Thought about keeping the motor and selling the shaper sans motor.
Just looking for input. Not trying to sell this to anyone on here.
