Lathe is out of action for the moment
« on: November 03, 2009, 12:47:02 PM »
My RPC panel puked one of the start capacitors   :bugeye:, so until I get a replacement capacitor and can diagnose the root cause (possible sticking relay)   :scratch: I won't be doing any lathe work.

Sorry to hear that.
I let the smoke out of my mill soon after getting it, they said it happens sometimes.
It sounded odd how formilliar he was with the problem, so I bought two boards.
I havent needed it yet but maybe tomorow?.?

I look forward to seeing the radial in action, good luck on the repair.

Got the capacitor, and the idler motor starts OK.   The converter guy thinks it's undersized, so I am waiting for some advice from the PM Monarch forum before starting the lathe up again.
