You can try Sears but they can be a bit pricey. I use to send out motors for a factory I worked in to a rebuilder who would even do new windings. Check in your area for a rebuilder, As for the replacement being a Sears unit they may have a similar motor in stock. Good luck.

If you still have the old motor, use the info off of the motor label that describes the mounting configuration (this is the frame type). Do a google search for "Electric Motor NEMA Frame Sizes" for a good list of them. If your label is unreadable (or missing) search for the owners manual for your tablesaw - they usually have the specific motor model number.
The motor frame type is all you really need for making sure it will fit your saw - however, if the old motor was a 1 hp, and you install a 5 hp - you may have problems with the size of the motor hitting the table saw.
Also, decide if you want 110 or 220 volts. In general 220 is more effecient (3 phase is much more effecient). But I bet you'll want to stick with the original horsepower and voltage.
Then, do a google search for your motor. The frame for my motor is J56HC, it's a 3 hp and I use 220 volts - so my search is usually just "electric motor frame J56HC", but if I find too much garbage, then I search "electric motor frame J56HC 220 volts 3 hp". Once you find a motor model number (the motor I liked was a leeson 115048) then search for that. I found a great deal on ebay searching for this.

You didn't give your model.
Protech is out of business so I could not find a user's guide for you.
The knob on the front that you use to raise and lower the blade also adjusts the angle. Depending on your saw, normally the knob releases from raise/lower mode to angle adjustment by either pulling the knob out and moving it or by pushing a lever to release it and then moving the knob.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
