    Changing Motor on Central Machinery wood Lathe

    Don't know if anyone has done this, or if it is even possible; but would my old 1 1/2 HP motor that I had on my now junked Sears Craftsman Table Saw, be able to work on the Central Machinery Wood Lathe ? The motor runs perfect even after 24 years. The Motor on the Lathe , is a 1/2 HP.

    Depends on the motor speeds. You may have to change pulley sizes to match the lathe speeds.
    When working I had more money than time. In retirement I have more time than money. Love the time, miss the money.

    Usually table saws have a 3500-3600 rpm motor and lathes use 1750-1800 rpm motors. You will definitely want to change pulleys to get the right speed range.
