I just purchase an old Rockwell/Delta jointer that is belt driven. It runs but it appears that the blades are turning in the wrong direction. Instead of the sharpe blade turning toward me, it is turning away. Can the motor be reversed?

some motors can be reversed, and others cannot. the name plate on the motor will normally tell you if the motor is reversiable.

if the motor has a pully shaft on each end, remount the motor after turning it 180 degrees, thur reversing the rotation of the shaft.

some motors with single ended shaft may be reversed by removing the plate where the line cord enters the motor and following directions inside the cover, or on the name plate for reversing the motor.

if you have a 3 phase motor, reversing any two of the 3 supply wires will reverse the motor.
