Would like to use this motor to replace my defunct contractor table saw motor. Would this motor be a good choice?
A: Check to make sure the voltage and amperage are similar. It is reversible so that will not be an issue. It is an open motor instead of totally enclosed fan cooled so some provision should be made to keep excess sawdust out of the motor.

I am looking to use this motor for a custom built grinder/sander. I have a dust collector but this would still be a fairly high dust environment. Would this motor clog up or would it be okay?
A: No this would not be a good choice. Your should use a motor that is totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC).
