A minor mishap killed the Labs drill press. Determined to revive it we set out to rewind the AC motor by hand. This must have been a labor of love because rewinding motors is no easy chore. After rewinding it 3 times due to some minor mishaps in the winding process ( a nick in the enamel, loose windings, etc.) we finally got it wound. Then the joy of putting it back together culminated with us not even having any parts left over! What are the odds? We fired the press back up and works like a charm. In the future we will be more careful, but it was exciting to get to get to wind a motor by hand for once.
