    Thermal cutout / fuse replacement for old Hardinge Lathe

    I put the the green jumper in to confirm that it would work without the fuseable link. What supply house do you recommend? Grainger? Allied...? Mouser? Yes I find it odd but the wiring diagram is from 1963... It's antiquated for sure...

    Thermal cutout / fuse replacement for old Hardinge Lathe

    I isolated the lower voltage problem to this thermal cutout. It has perfect voltage on the incoming side but low voltage coming out. Am I missing something? The problem appears to be the fuse. I suspect it was damaged but not completely blown when I had the wiring polarity backwards when I...

    Thermal cutout / fuse replacement for old Hardinge Lathe

    Larry, Thank you for the response, This box (pictured) is obviously different than mine. I will take pics of my actual box. The devices I want to replace are some sort of overload protection. They are located this same area in my box. I think they might be a slow blow fuseable link? Anyway, On...

    Hardinge HC spindle variable speed won't change speed troubleshooting info

    Thank you for the response. I was able to disassemble the variable assembly last night. I think I may have found the problem. I believe the motor is shorted in the windings. The wire leads for the motor were very brittle. The insulation flaked off when I touched it basically. I tried to repair...

    Hardinge HC spindle variable speed won't change speed troubleshooting info

    I want to pull the electric motor out to inspect the internal wires. This machine is probably a late 70s early 80s? I'm worried the wiring is causing the issue. I snagged this photo online. It is what my variable speed box looks like.
