I was wondering if it is possible to replace the 800w motor on my 01486 bandsaw with the 2hp version from an 01444 bandsaw.

My concern is with the relative drive shaft sizes that could mess up connecting the motor belt pulley and lower band wheel

If anyone has a 01444 could they do me a huge favour and measure the diameter of the drive shaft.

If anyone has looked at this and has any success or disaster stories to share, they would be very welcome.
