Trace the cap wires to its terminals in the end plate and one end should be connected to a winding, test continuity for the other end of the start winding, should be at the power in terminal,
Reverse the two leads that come out of the motor that established the start winding .
Better still detect the other pair that are the Run winding, and reverse those instead.

Flip the blade and walk around to the other side of the table?

That's only partially sarcasm. I assume the nut is left/right handed to whatever direction makes sense for the direction it spins. Spin it the other way and the blade could come off. Just make sure it makes sense what you want to do, and if it makes more sense to leave it as is, do that.
