I thought I'd pose this question to my fellow spinney folks. I have 2 older Delta midi lathes. One of them is fully functional and I use it regularly. The other has a bad motor. Delta has discontinued the replacement motors and I know that PSI makes a varialble speed replacement that will fit it, but I've heard it is under powered. I'd like to get the other Delta running so my grandkids can turn beside me (I have 2 who want to learn so far). And I'd like it to be variable speed. Have any of you heard of someone successfully replacing the motor with an option other than the PSI VS? I'm wondering how different the set up is for the newer Delta VS midi, or possibly a Jet VS mini and whehter or not I m ight be able to retrofit one of those motors. Any thoughts or success stories?
