    Jet mini help required

    Guys,
    I've noticed recently on my JML-10141 mini lathe, approx 6-7 yrs old, that the motor gets extremely hot very quickly, even at slow speeds.
    Has anyone else come across this problem?
    And is it a problem?
    Looking at the parts manual and having a quick shifty of the motor without stripping it too far, it would appear the motor is completely encased in its housing. Therefore not allowing sawdust / debris into the motor itself. Fan still rotates.
    Any comments / suggestions most welcome.

    Hmmm

    Page 4 of the manual says.... under Warnings... not sure if it means the extension or the machine will overheat...

    Use the proper extension cord. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersize cord will cause a drop in the line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. For runs up to 25 feet, use an 18 AWG or larger gauge cord. For runs up to 50 feet, use a 16 AWG or larger gauge cord. For runs up to 100 feet, use a 14 AWG or larger gauge cord. For runs up to 150 feet, use a 12 AWG or larger gauge cord. Runs over 150 feet are not recommended. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.
    Looking at turning and trying out hopefully new ideas and sharing the results.

    Just the motor? Or does the headstock get hot too?
