Anyone know of a decent shop that can quote rewinding an AC Motor?
1/3 hp 110 60hz
This motor is really old (40s) and assembled and sold by GE.
Yes, I know it might be cheaper to buy a replacement, but this thing is part of the original machine I just traded for and would like to keep it semi original.

It's a DELTA DP220 Floor Drill Press.
My plan is to mainly clean it up, replace the power/switch wiring, replace the pullies (both have some decent sized chips in it), keep the respray (we think the machine shop painted), check the alignment of the spindle and use it. :)
Here is a pic of the drill press and motor.

Not blown, still works, just feel it needs a refurb to make run better... After all it is very very very old.

It will cost you around 400 bucks. There's several places in San Antonio that work on ac motors. The ones that do will send it out to get it re wound. We were going to get the motor for my dad's table saw redone because it had a short in it, but bought a brand new saw for less. That's way cooler than a 1970's Rockwell saw though.

Found out that this drill press was sold around 1935!
The motor is not part of the original machine.
