    That doesn't make much sense. A Powerturn is a constant running motor with a clutch for spindle control. It takes far more amperage to get the motor spinning than it does to get the spindle turning.

    Glad you got it fixed. I like leaving 2% of finish hole diameter for a reamer. You were leaving near 20%. Reamers aren't precision tools at that much material removal, just high flute count drills.

    If it was I, the depth of cut would be 3 or 4 passes to get the 5/16 depth of cut. Then with each successive pass I'd back the table return dog by another 1/2".

    After the rebuild have you adjusted the carburetor? my thought is you have much more engine vacuum now so it is pulling a little more propane out of the vaporizer.
