NEW! Faster Search Option
I have a new Delta 17-965 drill press that is a week old, and today it shut down (after getting too hot I suppose). An hour later it starts after cooling and runs fine. It's on a 20 amp circuit wired with 12ga, with nothing else running, so there should be no problem with supply.
I had been sanding for about a half hour with a drum approx 1" diameter and had been applying moderate pressure. Didn't think that I was stressing anything; however, I imagine this puts more strain on the motor than drilling holes.
Of course I can call Delta on Monday during business hours. In the meantime, has anyone had similar experiences, or have any ideas?
