Looking for a century skeletal with start switch.  S3 or S4...whichever would be more affordable.

Did any S3's have the start switch? Or was it only S4?

The very early S-3s had a start switch & usually had a cast iron base. They are pretty scarce though.

@Chris Thanks...I'll keep a watch on it. Do you know if it has a start switch though (like from the model/serial number)? Can't really tell from the pics.

The one on Ebay you mean right? I was going to ask them for additional pics but if you are able to tell from what is there I'm not going to bother.

Thanks!! Jeff

I'm more confused now. By self start you mean it would have the centrifugal switch right? Or not have it. Wouldnt the earlier model 15 ones have it...if the later ones had improved on the design and eliminated the need for the centrifugal switch by building the starting phase shift into the speed coil?

self start means there is no start / centrifuged switch
All steal base century are self starting no centrifugal start
What I’ll do is I’ll start a topic on century skeletals what’s
Centrifugal and what’s not and the difference is I’m sure that
Will help you

I have an S3 non oscillator with cast iron base. Sidney Lamb rewound the motor some years ago. It has the centrifical switch and works perfectly. I have not wanted to sell it until reading your email. My price is 650.00   with free shipping. Walker McVea

I have a bunch of parts for an early S3 stationary, cast base, split-phase. I sent the stator for rewinding to a local shop 15 years ago and they lost it. I have everything else except maybe the blade and cage (may have those too somewhere.) The painted parts are powder coated and the all steel bits are cleaned up and blackened. And I have a brand new choke coil (Sarton) and new centrifugal switch insulators (Darrell Hudson). Let me know if you're looking for parts.

It looks exactly like the one in above pictures except much better paint, although not perfect. Nice brass cage and blade. Walker
