I think that this motor came out of a sump pump of the type that stands on the top of a sort of 3 foot pedestal. The pedestal would then go down into a hole such as the basement floor. Float switches would turn it on to keep the cellar from filling up with water.

Is a sump pump motor intended for continuous operation? Or is it a duty cycle type motor? Wondering whether it will stand up to lathe operation.
