You are right, it is a repulsion induction motor. It came off a WWII era Sears table saw. I used the saw in the early 1970's and something broke on it which I couldn't fix at the time so I salvaged everything I could off the saw and disposed of it. I used the motor on one thing or another over the years but haven't used it in more than 20 years. This week I bought a antique woodworking bandsaw that didn't have a motor so I planned to use this one. I plan to restore the bandsaw so I hate to use a motor with a big hole in it. This is behind the repair. The two cast pieces missing are 2 1/4" straight across the break but if measured around the contour measure 2 1/2". I think I could make the pieces out of 1/4" steel without too much trouble. I was just unsure about welding steel to cast. I believe that end of the motor wouldn't be too much trouble to get off but I will have to double check.

Using an open motor on a band saw is a poor idea.Sawdust on the brush leads can catch fire.Theres lots of sparking at the brushes during starting.

There is not that much dust with the saw it is going to be used on. It is certainly less dust than the saw it came off of. The motor was off an old Sears table saw like this one which the motor was directly under the blade.
