Jet Lathe motor slowing downa and getting hot
I just got my workshop together and start working with my Jet Lathe, a 1411. I've turned a pen & pencil set and made a lot of chips getting use to working with the tools.
I was in the shop this morning working on a small bowl - 4" dia, when the motor just slowed way down. It was set for 850 rpm and had been running fine on Wed and an hour earlier. Now it turns but its really slow and no power - I can stop it by grabbing the bowl with my hand with no problem. The motor casing is hot to the touch, the belt is in the correct pulleys.
Any thoughts as to problem would be appreciated as well as options for replacing the motor.
Thanks and everyone have a Merry Christmas
