There are conditions attached, the $2 million must be collected in person by your great great great grandparents  ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for looking and i am really desperate.

I am using a RF31 mill from http://www.axminster.co.uk/product-Axminster-RF31-Vertical-Mill-Drill-21299.htm these are also sold under Chester/Warco in the UK and i believe cnc jnr in the US of A uses the same mill.

I need some info on the wiring to the motor, a complete breakdown "Idiots Guide" as you will know i am electrically challenged as it says in my sig

I needed to take the motor off and it was some time before it went back on, it does work but it is getting a bit hot 76' C to be exact so i am thinking i have got something wrong.

What i need is the live and neutral connections when running forwards then reverse to the motor terminals.

Begging

This prize has now been claimed, sorry to anyone who is in the process of stripping their machine down.

The motor was wired correctly. Amazingly for me.

It just happens to be a *********e motor on a *********e machine. I was thinking of doing a review for the Axminster but i don't think they would allow it.

Apologies for the language if anyone is offended.

Must go i have to find a supplier of a quality motor. One that is continuous rated.

Wow that's amazing the asterisks went in automatically.

If you are in UK I have a 1h.p. motor taken off my Warco lathe - perfectly sound, and I have no problems with it.
I took it off to replace it with a three phase for speed control.

You might consider doing the same, and running the new motor through a single phase/three phase inverter. A bit pricey to start with, but if you have to buy a motor anyway, look to the future.
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

Thanks Jim.

Yes unfortunately i am in the UK.

As my other thread i may go the three phase route or the AC servo route.

The machine isn't even wired correctly. It has a temp overload device attached to the motor which is a capacitor start

When it trips it turns off the running coil so the motor is starting/cutting out starting/cutting out since that happened the problem has got progressively worse. It should have been wired through the NVR switch.

What is even more frustrating is i have a inverter but no instructions it is 11A input at 240v 5.3A output at 440v

Hood i think Jim is more in the UK than i am. If you know what i mean. ::)

I do have the details on the unit and the first thing i did was a google search but nothing came up.

It is French but made in the UK by Gegelec

It says ALSPA VFMA

Type VFMA 2005A

I have sent a mail to Cegelec today but don't hold out much hope.

Do you have a pic of it? might help in identifying as these types of electronics companies are allways changing hands so it might be called something different.

Looks like you could just hook it up the way it is and use the buttons for speed control. Buttons  seem to have standard symbols on them, Green=Start, Red=Stop, Blue=Reverse Direction, Black Up/Dn arrows for increase/Decrease frequency. Not sure what the middle button at the top is though.
