to convert the Jet 1442 from the Reeves Unit to Electronic Variable Speed?
I would love to upgrade to the 1642, but the price is way far out of my budget, plus I would probably need to upgrade
some or most of my accessories to fit the 1 1/4" spindle... so not an option.
I've just ordered a new set of motor spindle pulleys for mine... the left pulley has cracked and wallowed the keyway out to the point that it won't slide on the motor shaft... this will be the second set of pulleys I've put on in the last couple of years, plus I've replaced the spindle pulley's once also... I'm thinking there may not be as much stress on the pulleys if I could put the 3phase DC motor in that I think most EVS systems run on... if it requires 220 voltage, also may not be an option... I'm not sure if my breaker panel will take 220 without additional wire run. At any rate, I would have to have a qualified electrician do the wiring as my hair is too short now to curl.
