    It was just the next increase in supply voltage, it's the era of 230/460v motors. Not sure when the bump to 240/480 started.

    I have plenty of motors that say 110v and 220v.

    That was supply voltage back 70 years or so, as demand got bigger, supply voltage was bumped up, 115v 230/460
    Now we are at 120 240/480

    It's called redundancy, like having 4 or more shapers set up, a couple moulders, 3 tenoners, etc. If a person has the need and work for pin routers, having multiples set up for different tasks,...

    Shaper, 4 unipoints, a 12" jointer and a #4.

    Yes, a few. Old head gets sent in, they measure and copy.

    Anything I can fit on it. After a few slabs for customers it wears me out, miss my facer. Also great for cleaning up bent laminations. I usually keep a 12" machine around for muck work though.

    The porter. Maybe the NF if it wasn't the MD.

    Parts availability for one of these is a moot point.
