Default Want to restore a Craftsman 6" Jointer 103.20660.

I just bought this Jointer for $40.00. It has a lot of rust, but the owner claims it ran last time he used (many years ago). I found that this machine requires a 220 receptical. My question is how to convert this to 110. I loaded some images. The plug comimg from the motor to the routher switch is two pronged. The plug coming out from the switch is not. Any guidance on this?

I am usually checking to see if I can convert a motor from 110 to 220 and not the reverse. Most motors have more torque and run cooler on 220. However, if you are sure you need to go backwards, some motors are wired for both voltages. The only way you will know is to take the motor connection box cover off and check the wiring schematic that is supposed to be attached to it or possibly at the motor specification plate on the side of the motor somewhere. The schematic will show how to change the internal wiring and the spec plate will probably show 110/220 where the voltage is specified. You should be safe with the motor phase. I don't think Sears ever sold anything that was 3 phase. Your photos are incredibly blurry so they really aren't much help but the first one appears to be a standard 110 volt plug in.

I had a Sears table saw that could be converted and a friend had a radial arm saw that he had converted so it is possible that it could have been. it's also possible that the owner did it and to save money he used a standard plugin on it. The 220 volt ones cost more. Be absolutely certain what you have before you plug it in.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks for the advice. I don't really know my way around electrical things. I guess I could look into installing a 220 outlet. How would I know if it is definitely wired for 220?

Take the motor off the jointer and take to a motor repair shop. That is the surest way for you since you admit you're not familiar with wiring. Most won't charge for telling you what it is since it is a two minute job.

Other options is having a detailed conversation with the owner and find out if he converted it. If he did he can convert it back for you. If he did do it, or had a friend do it, AND he used a standard plug in and receptacle (a real no-no) then he had a dedicated outlet for it. You can test that outlet with a circuit tester easily. If you take the cover plate off and put one lead on the tester in an outlet hole and ground the other lead to the outlet box either outlet hole will light the tester up meaning both sides of the plug are live, i.e. 220 volt. Testing just the motor is a little more complicated.

I plugged a trouble light into a standard outlet that someone had converted to 220 once. The bulb exploded. That's why you're supposed to use the correct plugs and receptacles. I think that if your motor has been wired for 220 and you plug it into a 110 outlet it simply won't work but get an expert opinion.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
