Replacement Motor Needed
The motor on my Rikon 6" Jointer, model 20-110 is dead. I contacted Rikon and since they no longer make the model they no longer have that motor, or according to them, any motor that will fit. It is a 1.5hp, 3400rpm, 110/220 motor with a 5/8 spindle. I've looked all over on line and the problem is this motor came out before the new "high efficiency" models so everything I am finding is too long to fit in the cabinet and even if I keep the back of the cabinet open the pulley will be too far out to fully line up with the upper pulley (oh and the mounting holes don't line up either). I've even gone to e-bay and searched "used". I really need some help here. My 5 year old grandson and woodworking partner really wants to get going on our new project.
Thanks so much in advance.
