I started a thread on this machine in the Community forum when I first purchased it. The thread is at http://www.shopsmith.net/forums/showthread.htm?t=3422 . I brought the thread over here since it will soon go from a "Community" announcement to "Maintenance and Repair".
Although I haven't started working on it yet, I'd like to get a head start on what I need to do to evaluate the motor. When I purchased it, the guy said that it needed a motor. Might sound like a basic question with an obvious answer but.....what is the best way to evaluate if the motor is actually bad?
Is the quick on / off the prudent thing to do?
Curious to know typically how much it costs to repair a motor assuming someone burnt it up. Hopefully this question can be answered without knowing a lot of detail about what burnt up. I guess I am assuming the motor has to be rewound when they burn up?
