>We are getting a new high efficency furnace and air conditioner installed today(Rheem)Kansas rural prices. I pulled the motor and squirrel cage. The motor looked like brand new, complete with wiring and shaft. Motor could be used on a mini lathe or other small lathe. Specs are 1/2 hp and 1725 rpm, 1/2" or 5/8" shaft mfg. by Emerson electic. I will use the motor for a flexible shaft with Drill chuck. Or it can be mounted solid for a small polishing and buffing wheel. Or whatever else it might be used for. I don't need the squirrel cage, but don't plan to throw away. Made my day and now that motor is worth $6500 in funny money.
