Replacement grinder motor.


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement motor for a finisher, I can't find motors with twin output shafts anywhere, only the usual single shaft?

It's for a small Chinese finisher i picked up second hand so not a UK company I can go back too. The current motor runs ok but is 4 pole and half the speed of my other machine with a 2 pole motor and is much slower use so I wanted to speed it up. 

Any advise appreciated.

Main advice is likely to be don’t buy Chinese and support the British companies active on this forum who will look after you properly 

I have Standard and Whitfield machines too, but this was from a shop closing down and probably saved me least £7000 so life is rarely as simply as that.

I have just given away a great condition singl phase Power finisher for free just to get rid of it. It was old but in superb condition.

Keep your eyes peeled there are some bargains to be had second hand and you would be better of spending on them than a chinese machine that could pack up at any time.

Believe me I'm always looking, a full size finisher is no use to me and finding a twin band scourer or really compact finisher second hand is nearly impossible.

So is the Chinese one 80 frame otherwise it will be bastard to fit one and the wheels must have 19mm holes, we sell double shafted motors. There will be another problem I can see doing this with a Chinese machine and that will be it will make the (very poor anyway) dust extraction redundant because it won't cope with the extra speed. 1ph double shafted motors are about £500 btw.
