The woodworking room is one of the highlights in attracting people to TAMI, and the table saw is one of the main attractions. Unfortunately it is often broken, and it is broken yet again.
Max checked it and seen the the field winding (part on the motor) is malfunctioned.
- To determine if other parts of the motors are broken. If not we can buy the field winding alone and replace it. We have already done this once. At the time (2016) at least, they didn’t sell it in Israel, so we had a friend of TAMI from Germany get it and ship it from there. The cost was about 70 euros (40 + German VAT + shipping.)
- Get a whole motor in Israel, at the time (2016) the cost was 900 NIS + VAT (according to @kfir.) We can use whatever is functional in the motor, as replacement parts to the new one.
- Get a completely new or used table saw, perhaps a more reliable one. The current saw belongs to Amitai, and I don’t know how he fills about returning it to him malfunctioning.
Your thoughts on the matter?
