I found a motor I think is from an old AC unit in the recycle. It is a 1/4 HP, 265V, 1.20A AC motor. I've been looking to make a low-torque sander and was thinking about using this as a a drive motor. I know the starter capacitor is there to provide an initial burst of current to get it up to speed. My question is, If I was to power it from a regular wall-outlet (120V) without the starter capacitor (didn't find one), and start it by hand-turning it, could this create a dangerous situation where the motor pulls too much current or something? I don't see any big problems, but wanted to ask people with more experience.
