That would be 1500 RPM probably.

It is probably a 4 pole single phase squirrel cage induction motor. It will run at fairly constant speed unless you severely overload it and it probably has field and starter windings that will let you reverse the motor direction.
It probably had a starter capacitor which you will need if you ever find a use for it.

You could use it to power a bench saw or a wood lathe, but these need you to spend a lot more money than the motor is worth.
