  • AMF Electric Motors

    Does anyone know if Grainger carries the type of motors we use on AMF pinspotters? (any model) If not, who (other than AMF) would have these motors at a lower cost than AMF? I am in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area. I need to know ASAP!
    Thanks... Lonnie

    I've never found any from Grainger. Last I knew, Vantage was the only place that had AMF compatable motors but it's been a while since I've needed to look. Someone else might have something by now that I don't know of.

      I get all my motor stuff from Vantage. I have Westinghouse motors by the way. The replacments are made by A.O. Smith, but everything is the same. Prices are reasonable too. I very rarely buy new stators though. I have a local guy that rewinds them for me for 80 bucks when they go bad. I would try to find someone to do that for you if it is possible. Beats the heck out of buying new ones.

      Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

        Thanks guys. Vantage does seem to be the only available scource. I just wanted to double check to be sure. Thanks again! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

          Hey Guys,

          Brunswick carries Lesson motors (direct replacement for National). I've found them to be reasonable and fairly durable.

              Leeson's are great combo motors too. They have carbon brush breaks just like the Nationals. The carbons & springs are smaller diameter but I've just drilled out the holes so that the regular carbons & springs will work.

                I've never heard of Leeson, but I'll check it out. You said Brunswick has it? Do you have a Brunswick part number for it? Thanks! Lonnie

                  The Quality catalog that I have with me lists the National combo replacement # as A-110-417-700 & A-110-417-750 for the B.E. motor.

                  The price book I have is from 2000 but it lists the combo at $388.70 & $360.65 for the B.E.

                  Sorry I don't have more current info. It's at work & I'm not.
