46-460 Delta Lathe


Good morning I have a really quick question for you, I recently purchased a delta 46-460 midi lathe two weeks ago and last night I was sinning a bowl 8 inches in diameter. when I give it pressure the bowl slowed down almost to a stop. I am concerned that it might be the motor or is this normal? I could really use your help I just starting learning to spin and I feel in love with it and the machine.

Just some guesses.
Dull chisle.
Trying to make to deep a cut.
Trying to us it with a long under sized extention cord.
Using a 15 amp circut.
Trying to run it where there was to small a wiring feeding the circut.

Thank you I will give all those a try I think I need to change the breaker anyway because I keep tripping the same one with my miter saw.

Where are you trying to run the lathe?
Time and time again I see DIY's running way to small a wire to a shed or garage thinking I only need one outlet and a light and want to save money then end up adding stuff one and have it not working.

I am running it in the garage, The garage is attached to the house so there is no shady wiring running from point A to point B. I just recently I started trip the breaker it never happened before I I am going to run out in a few to lowes and purchase a stronger breaker and change it, out like you suggested hopefully that will help.

You just can't buy a stronger breaker.
The breaker has to be sized for the wire, so if you #14, then you can only install a 15 amp breaker.

Hold on, what sized wire is running to that circut?
If it's 14-2 you can only have a 15 amp.breaker.
If it's 12-2 you can use a 20 amp breaker.
Using to high an amperage breaker and the wires can melt before the breaker ever trips.

Permission to recover drill sgt?

You have 20 amp breakers and can't exceed that size.
You need to find out why the breaker is tripping.

You don't have a choice but to change it for the same size.
They are cheap enough, but it may not be the problem.

You need to check the circuit for a loose connection from the panel to all the receptacles.
You should also check you saw on another circuit to make sure that is not the problem.
