can I add a capacitor to my electric motor shoe polisher to run faster? it runs on 110V. Thank you?

Yes you can. It will not run faster.

A capacitor does not increase the voltage. To an electric motor a capacitor is added to store up some amperage so that when you flip the switch it has enough power to turn the motor over and get it spinning.

Useless act ! No affect to motor speed , but waste more electricity.

No, what a strange idea. It will do nothing when connected in parallel. In series it will slow the motor down.
