I just finished some repairs and adjustments on my BS14002 bandsaw. When I went to run it the motor goes in reverse. Can anyone explain this to me? The label on the motor states clearly that it is a non-reversable 120/220V motor (I'm running it on 120V) and the motor turns CCW at the shaft end. But it is clearly going CW, not CCW, and my blade is going in reverse. I haven't run it for a week, as I broke the shaft/hinge on the upper wheel, but I got the repair part and replaced it today. It was certainly going the correct way last week.
No announcement yet.
