    Finished changing the oil and filter and got all the wiring cleaned up inside the rear cabinet, and I noticed this thing attached to the bed right above the motor, below the chuck. It is connected to...

    Well I must say some impressive theory being bantered about here in my day away from discussion.

    When I was tuning this, I started out with the correct compensation, which was 61uF and 50uF and the no load voltages were perfect at the time, 258 Vac/Vbc, and 238 Vab, but when I loaded it the Vac...

    Forgot to add the voltages at lathe startup.

    Vac and Vbc drop to about 120 then come back up to the above listed voltages, main line voltage drops to about 215.

    Thank you for any and all...

    Probably not important to this discussion, merely adding it as another instance of the same sort of start/run windings.

    I have a TECO 10HP motor I was thinking of using in my RPC and when I pulled...

  15. Thanks for the update, I will look for the...

    Thanks for the update, I will look for the General strainer and replace the Baldwin filter that is on there. Good idea putting the magnets in there, I have some rare earth magnets that should drop...
  16. Did you ever find out an answer to your question?...

    Did you ever find out an answer to your question? My lathe has a Baldwin BT839-10 attached to the "filter" housing, I'm not sure if that would cause a suction restriction. I would like to get my...

    Several people beat me to it, but CAIG labs, Cramolin, now called D5 or Deoxit works EXCELLENT on all things electrical. Back in the 80's you could get RED or BLUE, RED cleaned and BLUE preserved. It...

    Okay, I'll search that thread, thanks.

    The fork that broke is on the front spool, closest to the front of the machine and the one that is over the spindle shaft. It's a straight fork with no...

    Well I got home early today and replaced all the wiring in my RPC, no difference, still won't start the motor, really heavy load. So I connected my VFD right to the motor and brought it up slowly and...

    Thank you again for the reply Elwood, no strange new noises or anything like that. It looks like the original motor and it's 208 3 phase but my RPC is 230 3 phase. The pulley on the pump has a small...
