Fish, I had one of them saws. Scrapped it when the worm reduction gears wore out. Parts are no longer available. Good saw while the gears last...

I don't think it was a Sears if it had worm gear reduction
At least I have never seen one with any kind of reduction.
The motor shaft is the saw arbor.
Collector and builder of many things.
I have a
machine shop
Wood work shop
And a Weld shop
And now a saw mill
and a bunch of new forum friends.

If that is a capacitor start motor, The one I had was. You can't slow it down, it will burn out the motor.  Muggs   :-\

The motor needs to have brushes to use a router speed control.
I'm not sure but maybe you could use a VFD.

I am pretty sure the craftsman motor is a brush motor on the raidial arm.  Now the motor that was on my compressor and was on the jointer needed start copasitors.

Yep, the rotor is direct and it does have brushes. I don't have to slow it down due to being able to get a stone that is rated with higher rpms. ;D

Thanks K for your help. ;D
