Hi everyone I have a Boxford gearhead lathe a STS10-20. This is a 3 phase machine running off a Transwave converter. Well last night I went to start it for the first time in two weeks and big problems. main switch on lathe on OK but pressing the start button I had a buzzing noise and then after 10 sec or so it just stopped. Opening the lid and a smell of hot electric's and the transformer warm to touch. All fuses are OK, plug and the two mounted on the transformer.Qustion is where do I go from here. I take it my tranformer is cooked and will need fixing or replaceing, However I know very little about electical stuff just half rememberd stuff from rewiring motorbikes 20 years ago.Any advice or help will be very welcome. I have been saving my pennies to spend at the Harrogate show and now my lathe is Kautpu.
Very Pissed Off Mike
