    I've added plexiglass on the top of the vmc to seal it as much as possible. Used those brush strip things to close the gap around the head.

    Yeah exactly.. Lower ON times. Neg polarity. The most important thing is good flushing. Normally with steel you don't want too much, well with moldmax flush as much as you can. Good cross flow...

    Looks great! Upgrade to led lights inside too!

    I just painted my recently purchased machine. Previous owners decided they wanted a custom coloured machine. It was awful.

    This is what I do. I use a 2kva Dongan buck transformer before my PP units.

    I thought I would be ok running slightly higher than the 5% spec but I wasn't. I burnt 2 boards my first year,...

    Verify all the voltages on the power supply and see what one is missing.. If you are not getting correct voltages then proceed to isolate the power supply from the machine. Check voltages again....

    Thought I'd ask, only time I had issues with boards was when I was running a bit over with voltages. Learned my lesson to keep things within spec.

    Hope you can figure everything out!

    And your tapped on the 220 on the machine transformer correct? Assuming it has 180/200/220..

    You seem to have lots of electrical & board issues?!

    Congrats on finding the issue. I too have just replaced Caps on older power supplies on the chance it's the issue. More often then not there is no sign of failure. No leakage or swollen tops.
