Golding Jobber #6 Restoration / Motor Tune-up & Service

Hello Community -

I am looking for recommendations to inspect and service (if needed), the variable speed motor that came with my press. I’ve asked local automotive mechanics for ideas / references but the referred resources are limited. Does anyone have recommendations on who they have used to service their motors? Or perhaps I am searching incorrectly - should I be searching for an electrician? Attaching pictures of the motor here in case that is helpful. Thanks in advance for your help!

Unfortunately, Briar press is not uploading attached pics….

There are usually electric motor repair shops in most locations. Most of them sell new motors as well, but if you find a good one, they will take a look at older motors and can troubleshoot.

It sounds like you have not even tried it to see if it runs, I think that would be my first inclination. Most of those old motors are fairly reliable.

Hi John - The motor runs fine! …just wanted to get a second opinion and get an assessment if it needs to be serviced. Perhaps if it works, then no need to worry about anything else?
