POWER CONNECTIONS

A separate electrical circuit should be used for your machines. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wireextension cords which have 3- prong grounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. Before connecting the machine to the power line, make sure the switch (s) is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of the same characteristics as indicated on the machine. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the machine.

DO NOT EXPOSE THE MACHINE TO RAIN OR OPERATE THE MACHINE IN DAMP LOCATIONS.

MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS

Delta Model 46-745(115 volt) and Delta Models46-746and46-765X(230 volt) operate on 50/60 HZ alternating current and provide ano-loadspindle speed of0-3200RPM. Before connecting your tool to the power source, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position.NOTE: The specifications on the motor will read “230volt-3phase”. This is correct and is accomplished with a high frequency inverter.IMPORTANT:The motor cannot be run without the inverter.

Do not change input voltages. This action will cause severe damage to the inverter.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

THIS MACHINE MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK.

1. All grounded, cord-connectedmachines:

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-groundingconductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Improper connection of the equipment-groundingconductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is theequipment-groundingconductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect theequipment-groundingconductor to a live terminal.

Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the machine is properly grounded.

Use only 3-wireextension cords that have3-pronggrounding type plugs and matching3-conductorreceptacles that accept the machine’s plug, as shown in Fig. A.

Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

ASSEMBLY

ATTACHING LATHE BED

TO PEDESTALS

1.Remove tailstock, headstock, and tool rest from the lathe bed. NOTE: See “ADJUSTING HEADSTOCK AND TAILSTOCK” and “TOOL REST” for removal/installation instructions.

2.Set pedestals exactly 58” apart (Fig. 5).

3.Because of the weight, use an assistant to place the lathe bed on top of the pedestals. Make sure that the holes in the lathe bed are aligned with the holes in the tops of the pedestals (Fig. 6) A and B.

4.Attach the lathe bed to the pedestals, using the twelve 3/8-16x 3/4” Hex Head bolts and lock washers.

The hole in the pedestal (C) Fig.6 can be used to fill the pedestal with sand or concrete to provide more ballast. NOTE: If sand is used, pour a small amount of concrete or similar material in the pedestal to prevent sand leakage through the seams.

In addition to showing the location of the bolt (A) Fig. 7 also shows that additional ballast can be added in the lathe bed (B). Steel bars, or other heavy material can be inserted into the lathe bed to provide more weight.

NOTE: Use a good quality furniture wax on the lathe bed (C) Fig. 7 to allow for smoother movement of the headstock, tool rest, and tailstock and to prevent rust.

ATTACHING END CAPS

Attach the end caps, (A) Fig. 8, to both ends of the lathe with 1/4-20x 1/2” button head screws (A) Fig. 9 (outside) the lathe bed through the end caps to the1/4-20flange nut (inside) (B) Fig. 8 .
