Electrocution or fire
may occur if machine
is ungrounded, incor-
power, or connected to
an undersized circuit.
Use an electrician or
qualified personnel to
ensure a safe power
once all preparation steps previously described
in this manual have been completed, the machine
can be connected to the power source. in order to
be connected to the power source, a circuit must
be installed/prepared that meets the requirements
of the lathe, and a power connection method must
be established for that circuit.
using an incorrectly sized cord causes machine
electrical components and the cord to become
very hot, which can lead to component failure or
result in fire. For best results, use the shortest
length of cord possible, and never use a smaller
cord gauge than the specified minimum.
