There you go...

Emerson electric made billions and billions of those things

They were good solid motors , some even had actual bearings.

Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

This is a real classic, almost 2X the size of the standard motor shown above, and real bearings to boot - & it works

At least you can oil it, the recent import motors are sealed up and non oilable, you just throw them away when the bushings run dry , I suppose.

Consumer grade motors with actual bearings in them in fractional sizes are rather rare in any event, have been for decades. The thing is, the bushed motors are more trouble free for the average joe idiot who wasn't going to oil the motor anyhow. Bearings *must* be oiled, bushed motors come with a honking big chunk of oil soaked felt in them.....

115 volts x 5.2 amps /746 = .8 horsepower, but the nameplate says 1/4

Definitely made before all the Madison Ave boys started selling horsepower.
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance!
