I got a lathe about 2 months ago. The motor on it was a stock and ran fine, cuts were good with a diamond bit but being second hand, I wasnt sure how old the bit was.
I changed the motor onthe lathe to a tamiya silver can presuming this would run slower, smoother and last longer. However, the motor started to squeal alot recently, cuts were not as good (which I believe was the bit) and my Pulsar would say "CURRENT TOO HIGH" when trying to run the lathe.
Do you think its my motor thats the problem or what. Im looking at getting a carbide bit for the lathe and a silver can motor to stick on the lathe, think this will sort out my bad cuts?
