- Aug 26, 2014I had this problem with my mill when I first got it. It is starved for current when starting up, you can either shorten the wires feeding it, or switch to a heavier gage wire, or do as I did and rewire for 220v which cuts the current draw in half. Mine was drawing 22a at startup on 110v.HTH,cOn Tue, Aug 26, 2014 at 7:34 PM, bob_estabrook@... [MILL_DRILL] <MILL_DRILL@yahoogroups.com> wrote:
I am new to this group. I have a ZAY7032G Mill that I bought used a year and a half ago. It was retailed by HF and is a 2005 model. The mill works great in all speeds except the highest speed where it will start and then repeatedly surge and cut out. I have replaced the start cap and will soon replace the run cap. Anything else I should be looking at?
The machine is used regularly on the weekend at the lower speeds and other than the high speed issue, performs very well. I am fairly new to machining, but am rapidly becoming hooked. I started with a Jet 9x20 lathe, then the ZAY and then replaced the Jet with a Rockwell 11x36 lathe. I don't mind spending a little money on a different mill if the ZAY is not a good choice. I would prefer to stick with a bench type mill for now as I will be moving across the country in the near future and would prefer not to move a knee mill.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
