hoping one of you with the DC motor know how can offer up some advice.
Thank you for the reply. The motor is a permanent magnet, 180 volt, 3 HP,
1750 RPM motor. It is very old and the name plate was missing when I found
it. The motor has been checked out by several people who do that sort of
thing, however I don't know if that really means anything.The controller is
a Baldor BC 160,( brand new). The problem- I can put on a pair of gloves,
turn up the RPM to full, grab the shaft and stop it! In other words I can
stop the wood lathe just by making a heavy cut. This slows down my
production. I have alternated the v-belt pully sizes on the motor and
I have also adgusted the approperiate trim pots in the controller to little
avail. I am afraid I need a new motor. Any thoughts?
