I took both motors switch and wiring back to the motor electrical shop the new motor had one starter contact Welded together . The tech said it takes high electrical current to do that he also said there is different ways to wire what I have he is going to show me how to simplify the wires to Achieve the same thing I will try it. The Dayton motor was fine the Dayton motor is 5k921 I was not able to make a 10 thousands cut with the Dayton motor and And when polishing to make a mirror finish my hand can stall the motor that a problem now I have a bigger problem a lathe that don’t run but I will Figure it out with help or no help because quitting is for losers and I will not lose this battle I guarantee that . when I do get it fixed I will sell the small 9 inch Logan that will make a 50 Thousandths cut on steel I need the room
Problem solved I would bench test before wiring back on the machine every time it would work fine but when in the machine problems . When mounting the drum switch there was one Phillips screw and the other was a socket cap the thickness of the socket cap was limiting the travel of the lever 30 to 50 thousandth from completely indexed the switch and would cause the electrical problem
No it was not mechanical and that’s the problem with some people with a very narrow mind of thoughts people open your mine and look outside the box you may be able to solve problems some people may have with their electrical problem. I try again when I have a mechanical problem . Maybe
