oh man, i thought these things run forever.
I was at my bandsaw just now, cutting out more of stus reindeers, and I started noticing a funky smell.
something like rubber burning so I immediately shut everything off.
I checked all around, didnt see anything burning, felt everything.
Went into the house, checked the circuit breaker board, felt it, nothing was hot.
Went back out turned on the bandsaw, dust collector, all of the sudden the saw dust from the bandsaw was hitting me in face, what happenned to my dust collector, and at that exact moment, I noticed the dust collector was shut down, and smoke was coming out between the switch box and motor.
I have a delta 50-760, 4 years old, Id say heavy use.
now Im stuck. Im the least mechanically inclined person on earth, and Im not 100% sure if I want to replace the motor or just get a cyclone at this point.
The switch box was smoking hot, and my garage is filled with smoke, smells like a fire, but its more rubber burning/electrical smell.
what should I do? replace motor or just go with new unit?
where is best price for motor?
