My understanding is that it will just be harder to start with the absence of
the start capacitor. I know on certain machines other than mills, some guys
will just give the machine a little kick start with the bump of a pulley to
get it rollin. I would think that if it's not having too hard of a start you
might be fine. I don't think I'd suggest trying to kick start a mill as
there's no good place to do it with these Chinese gear heads.
I use a piece of leather shoelace wrapped around the spindle to spin my
RF45 clone up in the higher ranges . For some reason those chinese ponies
don't like starting from a dead stop in high gear . Been like this from new
, but I have always intended to go with 3ph and a VFD someday ...
