Vintage Higgs AC Electric Motor. Huge motor, probably antique in age.
Previously listed for sale as 3-phase, as per the motor plate. HOWEVER an eagle-eyed viewer thinks this is a mistake, and it's actually single phase. Or perhaps it was rewound to be single phase? It was working when removed from standard 240V in, and note it only has two input wires (red and black), so this now makes sense. I can test it again, or show inside the junction box if any prospective buyers wish to have more detail.
Very heavy, yet only rated at 2 BHP according to the spec plate - I suspect the windings will last for centuries they don't make motors like they used to! Used to drive a large indoor organ blower (see my other listings). Would make an excellent drive motor for a vintage or antique workshop mchine tool or similar. Collection in person from a few miles west of Ludlow (Shropshire).Please see my other auctions for more engineering items as my workshop clearout continues!
