Motor wiring.
« on: March 07, 2017, 03:55:11 pm »
Several years ago I made a trade of Web work for a rock saw. It was buried in my little storage barn since then. It came without a stand but included a new motor the fellow purchased to run it.  I'm in the process of building a stand, but now I need to know what way this motor turns in order to build a mount for it. Any body know the correct way to wire this?. The motor didn't include aNY sort of pothead.

Pothead? As in some smoker? As far as wiring, it's right there on the name plate.

"4" (where the blue wire is) and "1" which is right below 4.  It does not matter which incoming wire goes where.  If you want to you can connect the ground to the outside case.  There may be a lug, but probably not.  Sometimes there is a lug on the base itself.

I plan on wiring a switch to the front of the stand and wiring the motor to that.

And, FYI, it is currently set to go CCW as looking from the pulley end.  Build your mount however you want and then set the direction of rotation that you need.  Nice motor - not all motors are (easily) reversible.

Most of the time on a motor like that you swap the blue and the brown
wire to change directions. I see that's not the case here. Looks like
you don't even have a brown wire.

The ground wire is the yellow and green wire in the 2nd photo. Usually it's located inside the enclosure like the other wires are but that will work as well.

Well, I needed to obtain a wing nut and a couple hinges. Motor mount complete.  Tighten the wing nut on the countersunk carriage bolt to tension, loosen it and lift motor to change belt speed.

Nice.  But that is looking a bit fast for stone work.  Cutting maybe but the grinder I *think* you may want much, much slower.  What does Google say?

Looks like 1725, and this is  1725 motor. In the video it is running on the little pulley on the motor and the big pulley on the saw, so it should be much slower than that I would think.  Running on same size pulleys should give me 1725

OK, even for the grinding wheels?  I just noticed what looks like a ground wire on the rock sled.  I guess that guy was worried about getting fried?  I would hook this up to a GFI outlet to be safe.  My wet tile saw (DeWalt) has one built into the plug.

Not a ground wire. I'll replace that with something else. It is a cable that goes over a pulley and hooks to a weight hanging off the back. This makes the "power feed".

Be careful if that's a white grinding stone. They are not made to spin fast.
