Hi everyone,
I recently bought a wood lathe and have got it running again. During my first experiment at turning I had to engage the highest speed which, though adequate to achieve an acceptable finish, didn't seem fast enough. The motor capacitor looked too clean to be the original so I'm wondering if it's got the correct value fitted. Does anyone know what it should be because the motor manufacturer couldn't help owing to the particular factory having closed down.
(The capacitor is located in the long round plastic case on the motor housing. MAKE SURE THE MAINS IS DISCONNECTED ). The value will be marked on it in MFD or uF along with the voltage.
Regards
