I picked up a couple of old Delco single phase RI motors. One is a model A1000 - 1/3hp , 5 amp, and the other a model 5000 - 1/2hp, 8 amp. Both run at 1750 rpms and run on either 110v or 220v. Both are really big and heavy for the ratings. They appear to be in good shape and turn easily, but I haven't plugged them in yet to confirm that they run.
My question is do motors like these have resale value? Are they worth putting into service around the shop? Any and all tidbits of info are appreciated...
