Lathe motor needs replaced

This past weekend, the motor on my lathe froze. Not because of the cold weather we've had either. Not sure what the problem is, but I have secured an older 1HP Baldor 1750RPM capacitor motor that should be a great replacement and upgrade. It will double my current HP and hopefully allow me to make some large sculptural spindle turnings that I've wanted to do for quite awhile. I get the motor this weekend so I hop to be up and turning again by next week. I will update as things move forward.
